European Commission Announces the Tech Services That Must Comply With the Digital Markets Act

Jon Porter writes the following in “Google Search, Whatsapp, and TikTok on List of 22 Services Targeted by EU’s Tough New DMA” for The Verge:

The European Commission has officially confirmed which tech companies, and which of their services, count as ‘gatekeepers’ under its strict new Digital Markets Act (DMA). … There’s Alphabet, Amazon, Apple, Meta, and Microsoft from the US, plus ByteDance from China. 22 core platform services provided by gatekeepers must now comply with the DMA’s obligations by March 2024.

Broadly, the DMA is the EU’s attempt to rein in the market power of Big Tech by opening up entrenched platforms and curbing ecosystem lock-in and anti-competitive behavior, making them compete on the merits of their products and services alone. Major messaging apps will have an obligation to make themselves interoperable with competitors, for example, while operating systems will need to be designed to offer third-party app stores and allow developers to offer alternative in-app payment options.
