EU’s Big Step To Rein In Big Tech — And What Comes Next
Show Notes

​The internet is changing – for the better. Last week, the EU passed the Digital Services Act (DSA), landmark legislation to restore users’ rights and rein in the dangerous business practices of Big Tech.

The new rules will put you in charge of what you see and what you share. MEP Alexandra Geese and Eliska Pirkova of Access Now join the Speechbag podcast to discuss what the DSA means for you.
