The EU Digital Markets Act has been proposed in order to further regulate the digital economy. In this episode of TMT Talk, Carolina Pardo is joined by Paul Johnson and Laura Philippou to discuss the potential scope, approach, and effectiveness of this new legislation. Our panel of experts will also give their perspective on the current status of the DMA, and what next steps the Technology, Media & Telecoms industry can expect.
After being postponed twice, the European Commission (Commission) published its draft Digital Markets Act (DMA) on 15th December 2020, in revised form — the EU’s Regulatory Scrutiny Board having objected to earlier iterations. The DMA takes the form of a regulation as the Commission seeks to ensure maximum alignment among Member States. The proposed “Digital Services Act” (DSA ) was published on the same day.
