The DSA is intended to set the scene for online platforms for the upcoming decade, as the Ecommerce Directive did previously. In putting in place a framework applying to all intermediaries online (from passive infrastructure providers to online platforms and marketplaces), it runs the risk however of creating spillover effects whereby the logic applying to content and products gets mixed up by policy makers, to the detriment of online freedoms.
Whilst the proposals put forward by the European Commission are more or less acceptable, the discussions unravelling in the European Parliament and Council comprise already many red flags at an early stage of the dossier.
