"On March 21 the European Commission proposed a 3% tax on certain digital companies’ turnover. This very political proposal ignores evidence that so-called “digital companies” on average actually pay a higher effective corporate tax rate than traditional companies. More importantly, the Digital Services Tax (“DST”) could lead to a number of unintended consequences for Europe."

"With the news that the United States, Canada, and Mexico aim to reach an agreement, at least in principle, this month on the renegotiated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), there’s concern that the agreement may lack the critical protections necessary to export digital services. This is especially concerning as rightsholders yet again call for the U.S. to remove or undermine these protections."

“How do we limit the spread of hate speech, harassment, and disinformation on billion-user platforms without building an automated censorship machine?” Bridy asks, and “How do we protect the rights of provocative speakers while also caring about the dignity of listeners and the overall quality of the online information ecosystem?”

"As we noted on Tuesday, one important component of the DisCo redesign was an emphasis on visually engaging content, some of which comes to us from Unsplash, a site that challenges the stock photography industry model. Unsplash photos are available under the Unsplash License, which allows reuse of photos on their service without permission or attribution."

"From DisCo’s perspective, while the comment section has brought valuable contributions and corrections (along with spam and trolls), analytics tell us that DisCo readers already engage more often with the content on social media, and this change isn’t likely to meaningfully affect reader engagement."

"The Supreme Court’s decision yesterday in Oil States Energy Services v. Greene’s Energy Group contained a clear articulation of the fundamental nature of intellectual property as a franchise granted by government rather than a natural right. This understanding of intellectual property likely will have more far-reaching policy implications than the Court’s specific holding concerning the constitutionality of inter partes review of patents."

"As explained in our previous “Antitrust in 60 Seconds” piece, the essential facilities doctrine originated in the United States, but has gained clearer traction before the courts in the EU. In fact, whereas the doctrine’s U.S. viability remains debatable, it forms part of the EU competition framework in both theory and practice."

"Tomorrow the Supreme Court will hear oral argument in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., Overstock.com, Inc., and Newegg, Inc., a case in which the state of South Dakota seeks to assess sales tax on e-commerce retailers with no physical presence in the state. In what is unlikely to have been a coincidence, the case that may alter the future of e-commerce will be heard on “Tax Day,” April 17, 2018, when Americans must file their personal federal income taxes."
