Big Tech practices draw early scrutiny under DSA, DMA

Europe technology

The European Commission opened formal proceedings to assess whether TikTok might have breached the Digital Services Act (DSA).

In a press release last month, the commission said it was concerned the social media platform’s risk management measures to ensure users were not harmed by “addictive” content were insufficient and that its age-verification tools might also fall short. The commission further questioned the platform’s transparency regarding advertising, as well as the level of data access for researchers.

In December, X became the first Big Tech firm to be subject to a formal investigation under the DSA regarding its lack of content moderation following Hamas’s attacks against Israel.
