Scholars at the Cyber Policy Center, including members of the Stanford Internet Observatory and Daphne Keller of the Program on Platform Regulation, have responded to the public call for evidence from the European Commission, as they evaluate vetted researchers’ access to data from online platforms and search engines, a key measure of the Digital Services Act.
From the European Commission: "The new framework for vetted researchers’ access to data from very large online platforms and very large search engines is a key measure of the Digital Services Act, to increase platforms’ transparency and accountability. The Commission is to adopt delegated acts to further specify the conditions under which sharing of data should take place and, the purposes for which the data may be used and relevant procedures, taking into account the rights and interests of the actors involved and, if necessary, independent advisory mechanisms."
