[WEBINAR DOWNLOADS] MARKETPLACES UNDER A NEW REGULATORY REGIME30 March 2020
The use of online intermediary platforms (e.g. Booking, Amazon, Facebook, Airbnb) has become „mandatory” for any trader wishing to maintain an adequate level of competitivity on the market on which it operates. The position of strength which the online intermediary platforms have in relation to traders leaves the way open for potential abuses, such as unilateral changes of the terms and conditions, without prior notice and without an adequate dispute resolution mechanism.
Regulation 2019/1150 aims to solve part of these deficiencies, this thing being both for the benefit of traders, as well as of final consumers, by promoting fairness and transparency of the practices of such platforms. However, the aforementioned Regulation does not meet all the requirements identified in practice, still leaving a series of important gaps.
In this context, we aim to:
► analyze the main obligations introduced by the Regulation, from the perspective of the requirements and gaps currently existing in practice;
► draw a parallel between these and the controversial obligations imposed to platforms by the new copyright directive;
► present other relevant aspects related to guarantees for digital content and services.
