The Digital Services Act package will have two main parts: to increase and harmonise the responsibilities of online platforms and Information Society service providers, and regulate platforms’ content policies; to set ex-ante rules in markets characterised by large platforms acting as anticompetitive gatekeepers.

This seminar brings together four experts on the various elements of the new rules, to deal with the issues it presents for:

  1. Online platforms generally;
  2. larger gatekeepers including the GAFAM companies;
  3. technical interoperability remedies for both inline platforms and the GAFAM players;
  4. the implications for newly Brexit Britain in revising its own rules, including the long-running ‘Online Harms’ legislative agenda.
