The European Union's "Digital Market Act" will come into force next Thursday. This regulation attacks GAFAM which will have to comply with the standards of the old continent in order to guarantee fairer competition on the market.

The new rules concern groups active in at least 3 European countries, exceeding 75 billion euros in market capitalization or 7.5 billion in sales in Europe. For the moment these are the Americans Alphabet (Google), Amazon, Apple, Meta (Facebook), Microsoft and the Chinese ByteDance, owner of TikTok.
