The raison d’etre for the EU’s Digital Single Market was to incorporate the digital economy into EU integration. But from its very launch, the strategy always went far beyond that, imposing too many restrictions on new technologies, writes Nick Wallace in EU Observer. Unless policymakers focus more on integrating the digital market, instead of holding it back with excessive regulations, many benefits of new technologies will be denied to Europeans, and the EU economy will be saddled with senseless, damaging limitations for years to come.
