More than a dozen bills to tighten regulation of large American technology companies may be submitted to the US Congress from representatives of the Democratic Party.
David Cicilline, chairman of the Antitrust Commission of the House Judiciary Committee, is preparing to introduce the bills, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters.
The draft laws prepared by this commission are based on the report of Cicilline on cases of abuse in the market of such large technology companies as Apple, Google, Amazon, and Facebook.
The source also said that in the near future, another bill may be submitted to Congress for consideration. We are talking about amendments to the law on ethics in the field of communications in terms of freeing the social network from responsibility for the content posted by users.
Basically, this document can be aimed at strengthening the responsibility of the social network Facebook.
