The debate over how to ensure a better regulated and democratic internet will gain centre stage in 2019.
Between China’s digital protectionism and the light-touch regulation of the US, the main initiatives will come from Europe. These will target big tech companies in a number of key areas, such as tax avoidance, data privacy, legal status as a content platform, copyright, and net neutrality.
