What is the Digital Services Act (DSA)?
The Digital Services Act (DSA), in addition to the Digital Markets Act (DMA), introduces a new set of rules to control essential internet services, called intermediary services. These services include internet infrastructure, hosting services as well as online platforms. While the DMA is focused on regulating the market dominance of the gatekeepers to ensure fair competition, the DSA is focused on the operational oversight. The aim is to control the areas data handling, data privacy, filtering fake news, and illegal content. The DSA was developed in hand with the DMA, and the final version is expected to be agreed to shortly.
