The Digital Markets Act is all about the user.

  • First the DMA is built upon GDPR consent principle. No nudging, a user has to explicitly choose.
  • Second, it is not competition law. But it is the result from past antitrusts investigations, combined with GDPR mistakes and successes. Unlike GDPR, which actually benefited Google and Facebook , it doesn’t put at risk competition rules.
  • Third, it doesn’t rely on member states authority or external organization. No need for the parliament approval. This is going to be real sooner than expected.

SO GATEKEEPERS WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE TO THE USER. HOW ?
