October IT/IP Update: The Digital Markets Act

The October issue of Intellectual Property and IT Law Update is now live for subscribers to Intellectual Property and IT Law.

This month, the team at William Fry write about the matter of The Digital Markets Act and what it means for data protection law. The Digital Markets Act (DMA) is a regulation that aims to increase fairness and competition by setting rules for ‘gatekeeper’ platforms, seeking to prevent them from abusing the market power they hold and ensuring the transparency of key services. The DMA is part of the EU's Digital Services Package, which also includes the Digital Service Act (DSA). Together, both pieces of legislation are set to overhaul the rules that apply to large, online platforms. The DMA entered into force on 1 November 2022 and is expected to become fully applicable by March 2024.
