Così fan tutte: Some Comments on Austria’s Draft Communications Platforms Act
Fischer, G., Kettemann, M. C., & Rachinger F.

It is in some respects better than Germany’s NetzDG. There remain, however, a number of flaws. In remedying them, Austria could extend its reporting obligations to include "soft" content moderation measures, algorithmic tools, and advertising rules.
