    1. A few points:

      • need for ex-ante regulation of a 'gatekeeper platform' (time-component of regulation) via quantitative ore qualitative criteria.
      • difference between France and Germany when it comes to breaking big tech companies.
      • Digital Service Act will focus: online advertising, content moderation, and algorithm: what is exact coverage of Digital Service Act and Digital Market Act.
      • what are elements of the 2000 eCommerce Directive?
      • change of 'country of origin principle of 2000 directive may affect current 'e-leaders': Ireland, Malta, Estonia.
      • how to ensure that big tech companies won't spill over regulatory burden on European small companies.

      • to establish trend on the Digital Service Act
      • to make clear distinction between the Digital Service Act and Digital Market Act
      • to follow in parallel changes in EU (Digital Service Act) and USA (Article 230 of the Communication Decency Act)

    2. platform liability exemptions

      This is the core norm that remains. It seems that EU will not go all the way against tech companies. It will be interesting to follow USA (Article 230) and Europe (Digital Service Act)

    3. content moderation to online advertising and the transparency of algorithms,

      Covering three issue areas.

    4. ex-ante prohibited practices by digital gatekeepers

    5. EU’s Digital Services Act and Digital Markets Act,

      ||StephanieBP|| it seems that DSA is gaining momentum. They mention DSA and Digital Markets Act. Are we following them separately? Should we establish this is as trend.

    1. Digital governance is getting 'nasty'.

    2. Margrethe Vestager, the EU’s executive vice-president in charge of competition and digital policy, on Tuesday argued to MEPs that structural separation of big tech is not “the right thing to do”. However, in a recent interview with the FT, Mr Breton accused such companies of being “too big to care”, and suggested that they should be broken up in extreme circumstances.

    1. EU's Digital Services Act (DSA) is getting contour from EU commissioner Thierry Breton in the interview with Financial Times. The main elements are:

      1. tech companies with monopolistic power could be:
      • forced to break up or sell of their European operators ('TikTok clause);
      • exclude large tech companies from the EU market.
      1. introduction of a rating system for allow the public and stakeholders to control behaviour of tech companies (tax compliance, content control).

      2. EU will remain with limited liability of tech platforms for content (stay with Section 230 logic).

      Mr. Breton compares tech companies to big banks before the financial crisis 2008. Thus, one can expect that EU's tech policy will be inspired via analogy to the regulation of financial sector.

    1. This article warns against the risk that new EU's Digital Service Act (DS), which is currently in public consultations, may lead turn well-intentioned policies to protect users into unintentional disruption of the Internet 's technical operations.

      It can happen if EU DSA lets content policy be addressed on the level of Internet infrastructure (IP numbers and domain names).

      Article describes EU DSA as equivalent of Article 230 of USA DCA. Reflecting similar discussion in the USA, the article warns about two main aspects:

      • right and responsibility of Internet intermediaries to remove content (Good Samaritan clause);
      • lack of clear definitions of terms such as 'harmful content' and 'dis/misinformation'.
    2. the European Union’s Digital Services Act (DSA)

      EU's Digital Service Act (DSA) is gaining momentum.
