Abstract

Digital Services Act (DSA) came into force, providing a general legal framework applicable to all online intermediary services in Europe to create a safer digital space, in which the fundamental rights of all users of digital services are protected. The DSA includes a special set of obligations for providers of very large online platforms (VLOPs) and very large online search engines (VLOSEs), with more than 45 million monthly users in the EU. As part of these obligations, the DSA contains provisions that help better monitor risks and actions taken by VLOPs and VLOSEs to tackle disinformation, illegal content, such as hate speech, and other societal risks. Article 40 of the DSA addresses this by providing a new legal framework for researchers: VLOPs and VLOSEs will be required to provide access to their data for the purpose of conducting research that contributes to the detection, identification and understanding of systemic risks in the Union.
This document presents the EU Horizon project 'Fair MusE's response for the call for evidence.
