Digital Services Act Joint Position by the GSMA and ETNO

Since the adoption of the eCommerce Directive (eCD) in 2000, the use of digital services has increased considerably. Last year, almost 85 percent of all individuals in the EU-28, aged between 16 and 74 years, were using the internet regularly. At the same time, the variety of online services has also grown exponentially, and new business and value creation models have emerged. In particular, the importance of online platforms that allow the wide dissemination of user-uploaded content to society has drastically increased.

The GSMA and ETNO believe the Digital Services Act (DSA) has the potential to restore citizens’ trust and increase consumer protection online by creating a harmonised EU legal framework applicable to all service providers offering their content, goods or services within the European Union.

We believe it is possible to achieve this goal while respecting internet freedoms and protecting the basic principles enshrined in the eCD. In particular, we welcome the fact that the key principles of the existing legal framework for online intermediaries have been preserved, namely the country-of-origin principle, conditional liability exemptions for online intermediaries and the prohibition of general monitoring. At the same time, new proposals included in the DSA, such as the appointment of a legal representative, will improve the effectiveness of the Regulation.

The EU has done important work in the past years. As several telecom CEOs recently wrote, we believe we still need proactive involvement of all top policymakers to make it happen: from #competition policy, to #BigTech & pro-investment approach by national regulators” #POLITICOBreton
