The digital regulatory landscape in Europe continues to evolve with many laws already in force or in the pipeline, some with significant fines for companies who don’t comply. Whilst the European Commission is progressing or implementing new legal frameworks, EU Member States and the UK are taking action at a national level. This means that understanding the various local law positions is more important than ever as digital services are rarely focused on just one country.
In this session, our experts from France and the UK will provide an overview of the following areas of law which are most likely to impact US companies as they do business in Europe:
- New legal framework for online content covering the regulation of harmful content
- Platform to Business Regulation for the business to business platform economy
- The EU’s “New Deal for Consumers” initiative (also known as the Omnibus Directive)
- Digital Content Directive – rules covering consumer contracts for digital content and digitally supplied services
- Cyber security, data and ePrivacy updates
- EU developments in the regulation of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
We’ll also provide some practical tips on how to manage compliance with the existing laws and prepare for those that are coming into force soon.
