ELI Model Rules on Online Platforms and the Digital Services Act: Which Rules for the Platform Economy?


On 15 December 2020, the European Commission will unveil its highly anticipated Digital Services Act Package. As part of the European Digital Strategy, the new rules are intended to modernise the legal framework for digital services.

In particular, the Digital Services Act will update the rules on platform liability. Earlier this year, the European Law Institute published its Model Rules on Online Platforms which are meant as a contribution to the current debate on platform regulation.

Against this background the speakers will provide a first assessment of the Digital Services Act and discuss how the work of the ELI could serve as a source of inspiration for a balanced approach to platform regulation.
