Microsoft and Apple are pushing to keep Bing and iMessage, respectively, off the regulatory list of new European regulators. According to reports, both companies privately argue that their services are not large or powerful enough to fall within the restrictions of the Digital Markets Act .
Apple and Microsoft are offended
On September 6, the European Commission will announce the list of the Digital Markets Act, which includes both general companies and the specific services they offer. These powerful platforms, defined by their revenue and user numbers, will need to meet a set of interoperability and competition rules. Apple and Microsoft were already known to be on the list – along with Amazon, Alphabet, Meta, ByteDance and Samsung – but the commission will need to determine which parts of these companies should be included in the law. Once the EU has made the necessary determination, companies will have six months or until March 2024 to comply with the rules.
