The European Commission has filed a report featuring mixed reviews regarding how big tech companies are approaching content moderation and complying with a voluntary "code of conduct," the Financial Times reports. The report showed big tech graded well with the commission on removing fake accounts, enforcing ad placement rules and monitoring disinformation. However, the commission reported general incident reporting, noting disclosures are "episodic and arbitrary." The code of conduct is expected to be replaced by a Digital Services Act, which the incoming commission hopes to have in place by the end of next year.
