How the Digital Markets Act Could Reshape the EU’s Digital Economy Online

Dec 9, 2020 · ,
Join the Center for Data Innovation to discuss how the DSA and DMA can promote and protect competition and innovation in digital markets.

The European Commission is planning to present the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA) in December, a legislative package that will have far-reaching implications for the EU’s digital economy. Early drafts of these plans suggest that the Commission will ban some practices by search engines, operating systems, and cloud service providers to address concerns that their practices are unfair for consumers and new market entrants. For example, the Commission may force businesses to share commercial data, ban platforms from giving preferential ranking of its own services, and prohibit sites from automatically signing users in to more than one of its services. These regulations could have different impacts on platforms depending on their business models.

Join the Center for Data Innovation to discuss how the DSA and DMA can promote and protect competition and innovation in digital markets while preserving consumer choice.

Date and Time:

  • Wednesday 9 December 2020, from 3:00PM to 4:00PM (CET)

Speakers:

  • Ricardo Castanheira, Digital Counselor, Permanent Representation of Portugal to the European Union
  • Deirdre Clune, Member of the European Parliament, EPP Group
  • Carel Maske, Senior Attorney, Microsoft
  • Bartlomiej Telejko, EU Public Policy Manager, Google
