eco Chair Oliver Süme: Do not Overload DSA with Special Regulations

Commenting on the Digital Services Act (DSA) adopted today by the EU Member States, eco Chair of the Board Oliver Süme has the following to say:

“In principle, we support a horizontal regulation in the DSA framework and are open to the additional obligations it places on online platforms. However, the aim should be to maintain a clear line and not to overload the instrument with special regulations. It is important to us that the obligations laid down in the DSA can also – and especially – be practicable for small and micro enterprises, or that these businesses are exempted from them. Definitions must be comprehensible and concrete. The liability regime and the principles of the e-Commerce Directive must continue to apply.”
