Columbia Journalism Review / Mathew Ingram / Aug 31
“Unlike the GDPR, which targeted all online activity, the new European laws are focused primarily on the largest digital platforms and services. Two of the most significant new regulations are the Digital Services Act, or DSA, and the Digital Markets Act, or DMA. Under the former, which governs everything from the removal of illegal or harmful content to the retention of personal user data, any time a service such as Facebook removes content, they have to file that decision with the EU, as part of a public database. … The DMA, meanwhile, targets a wide range of anti-competitive behavior, requiring any company defined as a ‘gatekeeper’—in effect, big digital platforms that provide core services such as search, app stores, or email and messaging—to interoperate with other platforms, and forbids them from giving their own apps and services priority over those of others.”
