Join us for a webinar about the Digital Markets Act (DMA). In this session, the King & Spalding EU Competition team will present the main findings of their paper “Do the Digital Markets Act’s Per Se Prohibitions Increase Legal Risks for Non-Gatekeeper Platforms”, to be published in February. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion about the potential spillover effects to non-gatekeepers, i.e., smaller digital platforms.
The proposed DMA aims at ensuring fair and contestable digital markets in the EU. To that end, it proposes to regulate the behavior of “digital gatekeepers”, defined as digital platforms providing “core platform services” and meeting certain quantitative thresholds. The DMA sets out a list of obligations and prohibitions for these gatekeepers, which they are required to follow independently of market circumstances and without the possibility to put forth any justification. Yet these per se prohibitions might also entail legal risks for non-gatekeepers.
