Spotify and Deezer lobby EC (again) over big-tech gatekeepers
Posted on: 14 décembre 2017, by : Stuart Dredge

Spotify and Deezer’s CEOs have both signed a letter to European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker calling for the EC to ensure they get a “level playing field” on platforms owned by large US technology companies including Apple and Amazon.
The pair – along with a group of European games companies – are calling for “clear and enforceable obligations that are a deterrent and prevent unfair businesses practices by platforms”.
“These obligations should include but go beyond mere transparency requirements, which alone will not ensure platforms act as gateways rather than become gatekeepers to the digital economy,” continued the letter, which at the time of writing has not yet been published in full – instead, the Financial Times reported on its contents.
