New EU Legislation to make the Internet a safer Space for Users

Group 7 Created with Sketch.

Introduction

On 23 April 2022, the Council and the European Parliament reached an agreement on the Digital Services Act (“DSA”), which introduces a new principle: “what is illegal offline must also be illegal online”.

The DSA aims to protect the digital space against the spread of illegal content and ensure the users’ fundamental rights. This includes a requirement to moderate and manage content, e.g., to assure that no dangerous products are advertised or sold and to prevent sharing of illegal content such as child porn or terrorist content.  

The DSA is still subject to formal approval and adoption by the Council and the European Parliament. When formally adopted, the DSA will be directly applicable in the member states and enter into force on the later of (i) 15 months after the adoption or (ii) on 1 January 2024.

However, the DSA will apply for very large online platforms (see definition below) four months after their designation as a very large online platform. The designation of very large platforms will start from the date of formal adoption.
