      The Commission has proposed a Declaration on European Digital Rights and Principles in Juanuary 2022. The Declaration is waiting to be endorsed by both the Parilament and the Council. Would the EU pursue the same sets of rights and principles internationally and universally?

    1. ESCWA annual report 2018: Technology for development

      ||JovanK||

      Hi, I am not sure if this is a mislink from before or not. The title doesn't match the link provided on this page.

      The link goes to the "Joint Communication to the European Parliament and the Council - Resilience, Deterrence and Defence: Building strong cybersecurity for the EU. JOIN(2017) 450.", not the "ESCWA annual report 2018".

    1. The Amazon case also influenced the new rules. In November 2020, Vestager told reporters that “data on the activity of third-party sellers should not be used to the benefit of Amazon when it acts as a competitor to these sellers.” Just a month later, her DMA proposal included an outright prohibition for gatekeepers from using the non-public data of business users to compete against them.

      The interaction between Big Tech companies and the EU regulators also influence regulations. It might hint at a potential pathway of influence for the future implementation of the DSA/DMA.

    2. Amazon is aiming to solve Commission concerns by leaning on the recently-adopted Digital Markets Act (DMA), by potentially sharing some data with other sellers on the platform, two individuals with direct knowledge of the case said.

      This indicates that even before the roll-out of DMA, companies are already forwardly conform to the rules. This "foreshadowing effect" of the DMA could happen because 1) the past EU regulatory regime has shown a decent level of efficacy in execution and 2) the benefits of compliance outweigh the costs of non-compliance.

    1. China’s tech regulation is getting more ‘rational,’ says top executive of JD.com

      ||MarcoLotti||

      Would it be interesting to cover also China's technology regulatory regime? This probably doesn't fall under the DSA/DMA curation, but since China is also a major player in the tech industry, how the Chinese regulatory model progresses might be as interesting as the US and the EU model. Scholars/big tech CEOs often pit these three models against each other. The US big techs often say that they prefer the EU model and are wary of the Chinese model.

    1. The so-called code of practice on disinformation, a voluntary set of principles the likes of Facebook, Google and Twitter signed up to in 2018, has been rewritten to compel these social media giants to make more data available to outsiders, commit themselves to stop online falsehoods from making money via advertising, and pledge to enact a litany of other measures that Brussels will oversee. But the new rule book, which will come into force in early 2023, will not apply to scores of relatively new and unregulated social media platforms that have garnered millions of new users in recent years, after these companies did not sign up. googletag.cmd.push( function() { var sizeMappinginstory = googletag.sizeMapping().addSize([1024,200], [[728,90], [300,250], [1,1]]).addSize([768,200], [[728,90], [300,250], [1,1]]).addSize([0,0], [[300,250], [320,100], [320,50], [1,1]]).build(); googletag.defineSlot( '52224093/Instory-1', [[728,90], [300,250], [1,1]], 'div-gpt-ad-instory-1' ).setTargeting('tag',["algorithms","content-moderation","digital-services-act","disinformation","european-commission","facebook","google","media","meta","online-advertising","platforms","russia","social-media","tiktok","twitter","war-in-ukraine"]).setTargeting('section',["technology"]).setTargeting('country',["russia"]).setTargeting('person',[""]).setTargeting('organisation',["european-commission","facebook","google","meta","tiktok","twitter"]).setTargeting('post_type',['pro-free']).setTargeting('page_type',['single']).setTargeting('post_id',['2131069']).defineSizeMapping( sizeMappinginstory ).addService( googletag.pubads() ); googletag.display( "div-gpt-ad-instory-1" ); } ); Such growth is driven by the promise of offering people an online space unfettered by content moderation and with a focus on free speech. While these fringe networks do not have the high user volume of more mainstream social media giants, they have become ground zero in the spread of disinformation, hate speech and other extremist and violent content.

      Harkening back to the lunchtime discussion on Tuesday where you told us that there are many conspiracy theorists operating on smaller platforms that have yet to be touched by the EU regulations, this piece says exactly just that. The new code of practice on disinformation (which would go under the DSA) only sees big players signing up, the smaller platforms (like Telegram) where disinformation is rampantly spreading have not joined yet. The EU regulation might just see how disinformation campaigns (and conspiracy theorists) switch bases.

      ||MarcoLotti|| ||Jovan||

      The DSA has a strong focus on VLOPs, which it rightly should do. However, the battle against disinformation and other online fundamental rights abuses might be more difficult to fight against since disinformation campaign might shapeshift into other forms, or just take different bases (such as shifting to closed-off, smaller platforms). Would a blog post addressing this caveat of the DSA be interesting?

    1. EU plans Silicon Valley base as tech crackdown looms

      ||Jovan|| ||MarcoLotti||

      If the EU indeed establishes a new base in California, it might be very interesting for us to follow how their policymaking and interactive dynamics with Big Tech companies might change. Would this encourage more sandbox policy experiments? Or would this become an influence point where the Big Tech, in return, launch heavy lobbying on the policymakers?
