On Wednesday, Chamber of Progress, the Computer and Communications Industry Association (CCIA), Developers Alliance, and the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) sent a letter to the Biden Administration, thanking the Administration for standing up to Europe’s proposed Digital Markets Act (DMA). The coalition of groups noted the DMA would single out U.S. tech companies for new restrictions that would not be applied to foreign competitors. The groups pointed to a multi-agency white paper from the Biden Administration which identifies a number of concerns with the DMA, including its impact on security and consumer protection, its lack of intellectual property and trade secret protections, and the need for clearer legal definitions.
Below is the text of the letter sent by Chamber of Progress, CCIA, Developers Alliance, and SIIA. The full letter is also available here.
