Data protection law in European Union

GDPR is focused on privacy and requires individuals to give explicit consent before their data can be processed. A pair of sub-legislation to GDPR — the Digital Services Act (DSA) and the Digital Markets Act (DMA) — take off from the GDPR’s overarching focus on the individual’s right over her data. The DSA focuses on issues such as regulating hate speech, counterfeit goods etc. The DMA defines a new category of "dominant gatekeeper" platform and focuses on anti-competitive practices and abuse of dominance by such players.
