IT for Change's Feedback to the Draft Digital Markets Act, 2020

The draft Digital Markets Act envisages the obligations of data sharing by large gatekeeper platforms along with ex-ante oversight by the regulator of such platforms, in the EU. This regulation is framed as a part of the Digital Services Act Package, being discussed by the EU to regulate the digital economy.

The feedback by IT for Change is available here. Our recommendations emphasize the need to focus on community approaches as central right holder association of business users and end users, away from an individualistic framework, the need for wider data sharing across the digital economy as mandated infrastructure and a structural separation across layers of data collection, cloud services, AI services, and customer facing platform digital services. The key research on platform governance inputted are available here and here.
