What will change in European Digital Markets after DMA and DSA?
The European Commission proposed a new set of rules to regulate digital markets and services and to create a safer digital space in which the fundamental rights of all users of digital services are protected. It also aimed to establish a level playing field to foster innovation, growth and competitiveness, both in the European Single Market and globally. The package includes the Digital Markets Act and the Digital Services Act. The European Council and European Parliament as co-legislators will also play important roles in the forthcoming legislation.
Apart from understanding the real scope of the initiatives, and the future roles of these three institutions, important questions arise: which steps are being taken under the Portuguese Presidency of the Council. Will we progress towards a harmonization between EU regulation and Member States’ patchy regulations? What is the expected impact of the new rules on competition, contestability in specific markets and innovation? What are the fair and reasonable obligations of large systemic platforms (“gatekeepers”) and those that operate in the market and use their services?
To discuss these and other topics, this webinar brings together members of the three institutions, academics and representatives of the industry.
