On 29 January 2020, the European Commission's Work Programme 2020 was published. Under the second priority - 'A Europe fit for the digital age'- the Commission announced its intention to put forward a new Digital Services Act in order to reinforce the single market for digital services and help provide smaller businesses with the legal clarity and level playing field they need.
While the E-Commerce Directive has been the cornerstone of the Internal Market for the last twenty years, Members of the European Parliament ́s Internal Market and Consumer Protection committee noted that the Digital Single Market is affected by increasing fragmentation in tackling illegal content online, difficulties to promote market entry and consumer welfare, and ineffectiveness of enforcement and cooperation between Member States.
