Second platEU reflection on EU Digital Services Act package published

May 14, 2021

The second platEU reflection entitled ‘EU Digital Services Act package in the context of large digital platforms’ authored by Paško Bilić from the Institute for Development and International Relations has been published at the website of the project.

In this reflection, Paško Bilić analyses the new EU Digital Services Act package, which includes the Digital Services Act (COM 2020/825) and the Digital Markets Act (COM 2020/842). The proposed legal instruments are viewed in the context of large platforms and EU’s unsuccessful taxation directives. The author concludes that the new package does not sufficiently address the most important segment of the large platform business model: surveillance of user data and profit making in Member States without tax contribution to public finances.
