European Commission Digital Services Act

Date: 13 October 2020

Time: 16:00-17:00 (UK time)

Venue: Online


Event Details

The European Commission has announced a Digital Services Act package to strengthen the Single Market for digital services and foster innovation and competitiveness of the European online environment. The new Digital Services Act package should modernise the current legal framework for digital services by means of two main pillars:

First, the Commission would propose clear rules framing the responsibilities of digital services to address the risks faced by their users and to protect their rights. Second, the Digital Services Act package would propose ex ante rules covering large online platforms acting as gatekeepers, which now set the rules of the game for their users and their competitors.

The panel will touch on some of these issues including competition related platform regulation etc.
