Abstract

The article deals with the legal aspects of online platforms activity. The legal regulation of the most developed countries quickly becomes obsolete, not being updated in the digital age. The EU has set the goal of building and a single digital market. The intensive development of information and communiction technologies has affected the emergence of new online platforms of for all known traditional services. The emergence of such services is based on the principle of a system of joint ownership or “sharing” in which owners turn to online platforms to generate additional revenue from the unused part of their property. The emergence and distribution of online platforms like Uber, Airbnb – incresead not only an interest of it platforms activity , but also dissatisfaction and society critique. Moreover, the spread of the Internet and social online platforms have undermined the existing foundations and caused a political, social struggle against the provisions of copyright law, privacy provisions, competition law etc. The lack of a unified approach to the regulation of traditional services and online platforms, is an obstacle to improving efficiency and quality. It is necessary to eliminate the differences in the regulation of the national laws of the EU member states. So the EU passed the “Strategy for a Single Digital Market for Europe”, approved by the European Commission on May 6, 2015. Now EU is gradually implementing a policy in this direction.
