A study by the law firm Hogan Lovells predicts that digital and technology companies can expect to face tougher regulations in the coming years. It analysed proposed regulations in 16 jurisdictions around the globe, finding that legislators are aiming to curb the increasing power of the digital industry through means which include mandatory access to data, and the break up of big tech companies.
