Amazon Pushes Back On EU’s New Censorship Law

Jul 14, 2023 | Political News

In an interesting movie, Amazon has voiced dissent against the European Union’s forthcoming regulations aimed at curbing online “disinformation.” The retail and tech colossus lodged a formal petition to the General Court in Luxembourg, contesting certain aspects of the rules, as per information initially divulged by the Financial Times.

The laws in question are encapsulated within the EU’s new censorship law, titled the Digital Services Act (DSA), an alarming set of rules due to take effect on August 25th. This extensive legislation targets major tech entities with measures aimed at reigning in digital disinformation and hate speech.
