The Council today gave its final approval on new rules for a fair and competitive digital sector through the Digital Markets Act (DMA).
The DMA ensures a digital level playing field that establishes clear rights and rules for large online platforms (‘gatekeepers’) and makes sure that none of them abuses their position. Regulating the digital market at EU level will create a fair and competitive digital environment, allowing companies and consumers to benefit from digital opportunities.
This final approval was a formality, but you never know with corporations.
I can’t imagine iOS with sideloading or iMessage with interoperability with Android, much less seeing it happen.
