The EU’s Digital Markets Act: A Triumph of Regulation Over Innovation?
Thursday, September 22, 2022, 03:00 PM to 4:00 PM CET
The EU’s adoption of the Digital Markets Act (DMA) presents three fundamental challenges:
- It will increase regulatory fragmentation.
- 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.
- It will be difficult to implement, as some of its provisions clash with other European regulations.
Is the DMA a triumph of regulation over innovation?
