It is almost half a year ago that the European Commission introduced its proposals for the Digital Services Act and the Digital Markets Act and ever since the debate about how to regulate our digital world has been in full progress. Discussions are currently taking place on EU and Member States level. Still, the impact of this legislative proposal on the media sector in the EU remains to be seen.
Therefore, we would like to draw your attention to the online event
Digital Services Act & Digital Markets Act – Impacts on the Media Sector
Wednesday, 16th June 2021 13.00 – 14.40
hosted by the Representation of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia to the EU in cooperation with the Media Authority of North Rhine-Westphalia.
