    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)
