Google’s internal documents show that Google’s alphabet department, Google, has launched a 60-day strategy to respond to the EU’s strict new technical regulations by allowing the US allies to boycott the EU’s digital leaders and clarify the cost of new regulations.
The European Commission will issue rules called the Digital Services Act (DSA) on December 2. After that, they must be coordinated with proposals from EU countries and the European Parliament before they can become legislation.
The proposal has triggered strong lobbying by American technology giants, and even some European technology colleagues are worried about the impact on their business models.
Reuters saw that the October document stated that its purpose is to “remove unreasonable restrictions on our business model from the committee’s proposal, and our ability to improve products or launch new features/services.”
When asked about the relevant documents, Google said that the new rules should take into account the demands of people and companies from technology companies more, not less.
Karan Bhatia, Vice President of Global Government and Public Affairs, said: “As we have clearly stated in our public and private communications, we are concerned about certain report proposals that will prevent global technology companies from meeting the growing demands of European users and businesses Demand. The policy says.
The document proposes to increase opposition to Thierry Breton, the European Commission responsible for internal market affairs, by contacting the US government and embassy to inform the new regulations threatening transatlantic relations.
It also suggested that the DSA threatened its power in response to potential concerns from the Commission’s competition department. Another aspect of this strategy is to explain costs to consumers and businesses.
The 18-page document also recommends joining EU countries and European online companies such as Allegro, Trivago, booking.com, Zalando and REWE.
