Proposed New EU Regulation for Intermediary Service Providers - The Digital Services Act

The European Commission (the “Commission”) unveiled the highly anticipated Digital Services Act (“DSA”) (here) on 15 December, which seeks to tackle illegal content online and foster greater competition in the digital marketplace by harmonising the responsibilities and liabilities of online intermediary service providers (“OIPs”) with heightened obligations for platforms with more than 45 million users. Similar to the P2B Regulation, all online intermediaries offering their services in the EU, irrespective of where they are established, will be subject to the DSA. The Digital Markets Act (“DMA”) (here) which seeks to ensure fair and open digital markets was also published by the Commission on 15 December.
