The EU’s Digital Markets Act: A Triumph of Regulation Over Innovation?

Thursday, September 22, 202209:00 AM to 10:00 AM EDT

Event Summary

The EU is set to adopt the Digital Markets Act (DMA) this fall, which presents three fundamental challenges: First, it will increase regulatory fragmentation. Second, its disproportionate obligations on the few companies it designates Internet “gatekeepers” and blanket prohibitions on certain types of business practices will be economically detrimental and legally controversial. Third, it will be difficult to implement, as some of its provisions clash with other European regulations. Is the DMA a triumph of regulation at expense of innovation?

Please join ITIF’s Schumpeter Project on Competition Policy for an expert panel discussion and the release of a new report on the challenges ahead in implementing and enforcing the DMA.
