360/OPEN SUMMIT: THE WORLD IN MOTION - EU DIGITAL SERVICES ACT, EXPLAINED (BY ITS DRAFTERS) - The European Commission has put forward the first-of-its-kind, comprehensive regulatory framework for governing digital services firmly based on the rule of law. The Digital Services Act proposal (DSA) aims to make the internet safer while protecting fundamental freedoms on which the EU and the US are founded. It provides for clear rules for content moderation online, transparency reporting, and oversight and preserves and clarifies the rules on liability intended to spur innovation. For this session, we are joined by the two leading drafters of the DSA, Prabhat Agarwal and Gerard de Graaf, to discuss the intent and content of the new regulation; the potential impact on citizens, businesses and online platforms around the world; and what it could mean for democracy and the future of technology.
