Dr. Aída Ponce Del Castillo, senior researcher at the Brussels based Foresight Unit of the European Trade Union Institute (ETUI) talks to Find Out Why about the EU’s Digital Services Act (DSA). DSA is a legislative proposal which aims to regulate online and intermediary platforms that bring together users and providers of goods and services as well as information. The DSA builds on the existing rules (established by the E-Commerce directive) to provide a framework for identifying and removing harmful digital content and illegal products. Dr. Ponce Del Castillo has extensively focused on the impact of this regulatory package on digital labour in her recent research paper. In this interview she discusses the global impact of DSA in its attempt to regulate the Internet.
