The European Commission launched today the 3rd Data Economy Package aiming to assess emerging data issues to ensure a fair Digital Single Market. Also, the Communication on Artificial Intelligence (AI) was released – the EU's first step to look at the ethical questions surrounding AI. BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer commented: "Comprehensive assessment is a good approach to foster digital technologies. Not every technological advance needs to be followed by legislation, only real market failures should be legislated for. The existing liability framework is fit for purpose.
The rules will reflect new ways in which Europeans enjoy culture and entertainment services online when they travel around the EU. Europeans will soon be able to fully use their online subscriptions to films, sports events, e-books, video games or music services when travelling within the EU, according to the agreement reached by negotiators of the European Parliament, the Member States and the European Commission.
