Telcos support the creation of a Digital Services Act for fairer tech markets

The DSA has the potential “to inspire a new global approach to digital markets”, ETNO and the GSMA wrote earlier this week in a joint paper. “The future of our democracies, societies and economies depends on digital ecosystems that are open, fair, competitive, and respectful of the rule of law”, they added.

The paper comes just a few hours from the deadline of the European Commission public consultation on the Digital Services Act package. In this paper, ETNO and the GSMA argue that, “on the one hand, we must address the balance between ensuring fundamental freedoms and preventing illegal and socially toxic activity online. On the other hand, we should tackle the effects of excessive market power in the digital space, taking a European perspective on practices that might unfairly disadvantage European companies and innovation”.

The joint paper tackles a range of defining tech debates, including: the review of the eCommerce Directive; principles such as country of origin, limited liability, prohibition of general monitoring obligations; regulation of digital gatekeepers, including balance between ex-ante and ex-post regulation.

ENHANCING AWARENESS ON DISINFORMATION
CONNECT UNIVERSITY

This CONNECT University online session highlighted the importance of supporting various forms of the fight against disinformation and debunking false news, e.g. fact checking, data driven journalism and quality journalism, as well as empower civil society and independent researchers. What should be the responsibilities of the media among the different actors (e.g. tech companies, platforms, regulators, civil society, etc.) in tackling disinformation? How could the media sector effectively cooperate with the other actors to achieve this goal and to ensure the plurality of information?
