    1. The US has seized 92 web domains used by Iran, including four which purported to be genuine English language news sites, the Justice Department announced Wednesday.

      The US authorities seized 92 domains used by Iran, including English language news website.

      The seizure shifts content removal from tech platforms (Facebook, Twitter) to the domains which are part of the core functioning of the Internet.

      This practice could shift ICANN and domain name industry into new policy realm of content policy which they have been avoiding for long time.

      In addition, justification of seizure considers domain name as property which ICANN and domain name community also avoided for long time.

      ||Pavlina|| it seems that seizure is not based on sanctions regime but on regular criminal code. Could you double check?

    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.
