Bitkom warns of too much regulation on digital platforms

The IT industry association Bitkom warns against too much regulation on digital platforms.

Although they welcome a strengthening of Germany and Europe as a location, "at the same time there is a risk of regulation going too far, which will ultimately make growth more difficult," said Rebekka Weiß, Head of the Security and Trust Department at Bitkom, the newspapers of the Funke media group (Saturday editions). She warned that the Federal Government's plans to tighten abuse control over digital companies could also affect German and European companies.

"Especially with the proposed expanding data access rights, growth potential could be blocked rather than promoted," said Weiß. In the USA, too, the tightening of digital companies is currently being considered.
