The European Commission enacted its Digital Services Act last November as another step in its efforts to regulate online services and platforms. Most of these regulations take effect next February, but some will require many European businesses — and others that have customers on the continent — to meet the first deadlines next week. Once again, Europe is moving further ahead of the U.S. in terms of privacy protection and forcing online businesses to be more transparent. This began with the General Data Protection Regulation five years ago and continues with the implementation of the DSA. More about this set of new regs in my latest post for SiliconANGLE here.
