In their introductory remarks EDiMA representatives expressed their wilingness to remain a
constructive interlocutor in the public discussions about the forthcoming Digital Services Act (DSA).
EDiMA would like to avoid deep polarisation of the DSA discussions, as was the case for the
copyright proposal. EDiMA intends to issue a number of position papers and organise events to
explain the organisation’s position and understanding of certain facts and concepts in relation to the
DSA. EDiMA is overall positive about the Commission’s 19/02 digital package, but the fine details of
various proposals will be decisive. EDiMA Board members also queried about a number of issues,
including the Commission’s further work on disinformation and intended scope of the DSA initiative.
On his part Mr
provided short description of the 19/02 package and pointed at the relevant
public consultations as the right channel to transmit feedback. Further details on specific initiatives
will be publically communicated as soon as relevant political decisions are taken.
