Abstract:

This paper provides a framework for maximising current and potential benefits of e-commerce for the single market while minimising economic and societal costs.

Forward-looking solutions are presented to enhance cross-border e-commerce in the EU, facilitate access to digital copyrighted content and improve the sustainability of online platforms. Finally, the paper reflects on the planned digital services act, outlining policy recommendations.
