Platform Economy

In today’s rapidly changing digital landscape, the Platform Economy is not just a new way of doing business; it is the foundation of the emerging information-based economy. It involves online communities that bring together diverse participants. Platforms, essentially the computer systems behind it all, host a wide range of services, making transactions, connections, and resource sharing easier for consumers, entrepreneurs, businesses, and the general public. These platforms take many forms, from e-commerce marketplaces and social media networks to virtual job boards, computing environments, trading systems, on-demand services, and sharing economy platforms.

The dynamic nature of the Platform Economy opens up nearly limitless opportunities, but it also poses legal challenges. These include concerns related to data privacy, content liability, accessibility, and other regulatory compliance matters..

It is imperative for businesses to stay informed about recent enforcement actions pertaining to lead generation business models, CVAA/disability access, and the bourgeoning regulations governing online marketplaces. Among other considerations, the recently adopted 2023 INFORM Consumers Act introduces new online marketplace obligations, such as vendor vetting and consumer-facing disclosures.
