Hungary Becomes Latest EU State to Consider National Social Media Regulation

Hungary has become the latest European member state to consider regulation around social media content, after Justice Minister Judit Varga announced plans to rein in the “tech giants”, including possible sanctions against what she described as their “unfair commercial practices”.

This move is further evidence of a growing trend towards online platform regulation at national levels in Europe, both within and outside the EU. Austria, France, Germany, and Poland have all pre-empted EU-wide legislation on the digital landscape, while outside the bloc the UK, Russia and Turkey are at various stages of implementing similar restrictions.

For a detailed look at what is driving this national legislation and some of the challenges posed for international digital operators please follow this link – kesarev.partners/insight_20210323
