Bringing Big Tech to Heel? Compliance Day Under the EU Digital Markets Act

April 8, 2024

London partner Matthew Hall co-hosted the April 8 episode of the ABA’s Our Curious Amalgam podcast: “Bringing Big Tech to Heel? Compliance Day Under the EU Digital Markets Act.”

The EU Digital Markets Act introduces a radical change to regulation of the digital sector in the EU. But what does it require and what have the designated “gatekeepers” been doing to ensure compliance? Aleksandra Zuchowska, Competition Policy Manager at CCIA in Brussels, appearing in her personal capacity, joins Matthew Reynolds and Matthew Hall to discuss the DMA and its impact. Listen to this episode to learn more about the principles underpinning the DMA, its requirements, the compliance steps being taken, the act’s impact on choice, innovation and online safety, the compliance workshops in Brussels and next steps.

Our Curious Amalgam explores topics in antitrust, competition, consumer protection, data protection, and privacy law around the world with leading experts in those areas. It is an amalgam because it is a group of diverse topics all in one place. It is curious because it gets the experts and asks them in-depth questions.
