Time spent by users on Apps is increasing and already accounts for over 52% of the total time spent on the Internet. Despite the wide availability of free and paid Apps, existing restrictions to development cause uneven distribution of economic benefits (95% estimated industry captured by just the top 10 producing countries) and increasing inequalities. This flash session will discuss the topic with regards to current proposals for legislation of platforms, from the perspective of creating a level playing field and how to seek a technology neutral, future-proof framework in Europe which allows European actors to compete on a global scale.
