The European Union is pushing to regulate big, global technology firms. Eric Heinze, Professor of Law and Humanities at Queen Mary University of London, speaks with Marketplace’s Kimberly Adams about how strict the EU rules will be and what they mean for Elon Musk’s vision for Twitter. In the interview, Professor Heinze says: "They’re very clear in the legislation that they want to distinguish between the giants — Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and so forth— between those and, you know, small startups or just sites that, you know, might just be run by one person. Clearly, though, the primary concern is with the largest and most powerful."
