French EPP Geoffroy Didier is the Digital Services Act's rapporteur in the legal affairs committee, reports @clothildegouj. This is important for three reasons. https://pro.politico.eu/news/geoffroy-didier-becomes-the-legal-affairs-committee-lead-on-the-digital-services-act …
1. The negotiating team in the internal market committee is made mostly of Nordic, Central European MEPs. Didier will bring the Western/Southern culture to the table (for better or for worse, your pick) #DigitalServicesAct
2. The French finally get a win. No French MEP was involved in the DSA in the internal market committee, Paris gets someone at last. (although not from the ruling party)
3. Geoffroy Didier backs ending online anonymity + is sympathetic to the rights holders requests (latest example is the initiative report on sports illegal streaming).
