dc.description.abstractThe dominant power of digital corporations over internet devices has sparked policy, regulatory, and legal reactions trying to impose accountability on such large enterprises controlling how end-users should use their equipment. Corporate monopolistic control is exercised over key features and components of devices, such as operating systems, browsers, and apps stores. Although smartphones, tablets, and laptops are general purpose computers, consumers are restricted in their ability to run software to make full use of the hardware. Such limitations have an impact on open technologies and the usage of digital commons. The monopolised power over devices is prejudicial to fair competition and consumer welfare, affecting end-user freedom of choice and individual self-determination. Reestablishing policies centred on consumer welfare requires the promotion of distributed forms of control over devices and alternative routes for access to online content and services. This article puts into perspective EU legislative initiatives aimed at economic regulation of corporate behaviour towards digital devices, and the role Free Software has facilitating the process of achieving fairness and contestability of digital markets. As a case study, this article presents the recent regulatory developments involving routers and modems in the EU, and the interaction telecom operators’ monopolistic practices have with Free Software.eng
