Internet must reinforce our core democratic principles and our fundamental freedoms.

The EU, the US and several partners proposed a Declaration for the Future of Internet to make it safe and trusted for everyone, and to ensure that it serves our individual freedom.

@EU_Commission I like the "open", "free", and "interoperable" keywords, I do hope your welcome presence on the Fediverse is only the first step in this direction! :)

By the way, would it be possible for you to caption you images so that people using screen readers can get the content?

(you can do it via the "edit" button when you upload an image)

@tfardet @EU_Commission The DMA already started by mandating interoperability for chat applications (so you'll be able to use Signal to message someone using Whatsapp, for example)

@jmcs @EU_Commission it was still unclear for me whether that was really acted and would be legally binding, do you have some sources?

@tfardet @EU_Commission @tfardet @EU_Commission the final version is still not approved, but there's an agreement that it's going to binding for big companies like Meta, Google, and Apple (techcrunch.com/2022/03/24/dma-)

@jmcs @tfardet @EU_Commission how is the EU going to force GAFAM to open up their APIs? it is easy for them to refuse invoking systems security etc..

@panda @tfardet @EU_Commission if companies don't comply they can get fines up to 6% of the global yearly revenue.

@jmcs @tfardet @EU_Commission That works for us as software companies in the EU but for US based corp. they don't even pay their fair share of taxes here, so forcing them to open their systems is far from reach. GDPR was good for users but the penalties are not enough for GAFAM..
