Leading by example: EU online platform regulation with people in mind
Moderated by Jan Penfrat (EDRi Brussels office)
Panellists include: Paul Tang (MEP S&D, NL), Katarzyna (Kasia) Szymielewicz (co-founder and lead of Panoptykon Foundation), Jon von Tetzchner (CEO of Vivaldi Technologies), Ilaria Buri (research fellow at the Institute for Information Law, University of Amsterdam)
The Digital Services Act (DSA) and Digital Markets Act (DMA) present a unique opportunity to set new rules for the platform economy in the EU – to make sure digital services serve people not only Silicon Valley profits. The EU has the chance to become the global leader in limiting the immense power big tech platforms have amassed over the last decade and a half.
This panel will consider how DSA and DMA can counter the attention-grabbing, user-exploiting business models of most of today’s hyper-centralised ad-driven online platforms. With a collection of outstanding panellists it aims at answering some of the most urgent questions: How to regulate Big Tech to stop how they hamr people and democracy? Which aspects need to be regulated? How can we prevent the aggregation of too much power in the hands of a few platforms and help to revive the decentralised nature the internet was originally built on?
