  • Report

  • 36 Pages
  • September 2022
  • Region: Europe
  • ID: 5659377

The growth in Internet usage and the diversification of online activities have increased the risk of users being confronted with illegal content. Recognising the need to regulate Internet content at a European level, the Digital Services Act (DSA) aims to make online intermediary service providers more accountable and to level the European digital playing field.

The purpose of this report is to explain the new obligations imposed by the DSA on providers of digital services. These obligations vary according to the size and market weight of the companies concerned. Large online platforms and search engines are particularly affected by the provisions.

The publisher will then detail the concrete impacts of DSA on the digital market, from an economic and societal point of view.

Finally, the publisher will present the criticisms of the DSA which are put forward by the various digital players.
