EU To Release Drafts Of Digital Legislation

European Commission Executive Vice President Margrethe Vestager said in a webinar that to make the 2020s the continent’s digital decade “is every bit as much about building trust as it is about investing in digital innovation.”

“In just a few weeks, we plan to publish two draft laws that will help to create a more trustworthy digital world,” Vestager said.

The Digital Services Act will be one of the regulations, which Vestager said will revise the eCommerce Directive and will make digital services take additional responsibility for contending with “illegal content and dangerous products.”

The Digital Markets Act is a second set of regulations. They will have two pillars, which Vestager described as a do’s and don’ts for large digital gatekeepers and a “harmonised” market probe blueprint “across the single market.”
