The Digital Services Act – A Current View with an Eye to the Future.
Our colleague Nicole van Roon wrote an article for the March edition of ECTA Bulletin.
The Digital Services Act (DSA) was published on 15 December 2020. It has been awaited with bated breath by stakeholders in the online industry and by IP right holders alike. The DSA is conceived as one of the central pillars for the EU Commission’s ambition to shape Europe’s digital future. Alongside the Digital Markets Act (DMA) it forms a pivotal part of the EU Commission’s digital strategy aiming to reinforce the single market for digital services, to ensure better protection to consumers and to fundamental rights online, and to create a more level playing field for businesses of all sizes across the EU.
