Lusa - Business News - Portugal: EU digital services law may discourage innovative new projects – Portugal Tech League




Lisbon, Jan. 18, 2022 (Lusa) – The Portugal Tech League considered on Tuesday that the Digital Services Act, which will be debated and voted on this week by the European Parliament, may discourage the creation and expansion of innovative digital services in the European Union (EU).
"Despite preserving the key principles of the Directive on Electronic Commerce established twenty years ago, [the Digital Services Act] may discourage the creation and expansion of innovative digital services in the EU, if it is not adapted to the new reality of the internet," argued, in a statement, the Portugal Tech League, an initiative involving different sectors of the technology community for the clarification and discussion of European digital policies.
This is one of the conclusions and recommendations of the report prepared by the League for lawmakers in Lisbon and Brussels, "which aims to highlight the importance of the Digital Services Act taking into account the key role played by startups and SMEs in boosting the Digital Single Market.
The European Parliament will debate on Wednesday and vote a day later on a proposal to tackle illegal content online and ensure that platforms are held liable for their algorithms.
The Digital Services Act aims to create a safer digital space in which users' rights are protected by laying down rules to combat illegal products, services and content online, to increase transparency and the accountability of platforms for the algorithms they use and to regulate content moderation.
The text approved in plenary will give parliament the mandate to start negotiations with the Council of the EU, under the French presidency in the first half of 2022.
For the Portugal Tech League, the regulatory proposal for digital services must achieve a balance between meeting the challenges of the evolution of the internet, more interactive and with new services, but which is not "too prescriptive, complex and costly".
In this sense, the initiative proposed five recommendations to define a common European approach to the regulation of digital services.
Firstly, the Portugal Tech League highlighted the importance of its applicability in a cross-border context, ensuring legal certainty for companies to operate in all 27 member states.
Additionally, the initiative pointed out the importance of "ensuring a free, open and plural internet", as well as the separation of the "obligations from the conditions for exemption from liability", defining that the fulfilment of obligations by platforms should not be a criterion for them to benefit from the exemption from liability regime.
For Portugal Tech League, the Digital Services Law should also not introduce short deadlines for content removal and should not give national authorities the power to do so, in order not to hinder the response capacity of entities with fewer financial and human resources.
Finally, the initiative supports the fact that the Digital Services Act does not prohibit targeted advertising and recognises it as one of the crucial economic activities of online platforms.
Portugal Tech League is an initiative created by the collaborative innovation consultancy Beta-i to bring together different agents of the innovation ecosystem, inside and outside Portugal, in favour of startups and the digital economy as a whole, including SMEs.
