In April 2022, the European Union released the Digital Services Act with the goal of creating a safer and more open digital space. This Act includes a concerted effort from EU leaders to crack down on “Big Tech” platforms like Google, Meta (Facebook), and Twitter and encourage accountability. The Digital Services Act was announced right after the Digital Markets Act.
These two acts should not be confused – as they each have very different implications for those who operate businesses online, nonetheless both Acts work in synchrony to encourage safety and further accountability to online services and providers.
