Deep dives

The Impact of the DSA on the Open Internet

The European Union's Digital Services Act (DSA) has raised concerns about its potential impact on the open internet. The DSA aims to foster safer online environments by imposing tighter rules on disinformation, illegal content, and transparent advertising. However, critics argue that the DSA goes beyond reasonable measures and threatens the decentralized nature of the internet. The Act forces very large online platforms (VLOPs) to disclose their algorithms, cooperate with crisis response requirements, and perform external and internal audits. It also requires transparency in content moderation decisions and targeted advertising. Some argue that the DSA's sweeping regulations give government bodies excessive power in policing and scrutinizing online content, potentially stifling free speech and hindering innovation. The economic implications and potential responses from tech companies are also a significant concern, with the possibility of market exits or compliance with stringent regulations.
