European Parliament's Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee has voted 36-7 in support of the Digital Services Act. However, the committee added a package of amendments, which included increased transparency around targeted advertising practices and a ban on dark patterns. MEP Christel Schaldemose said the EU is "democratically reclaiming our online environment" with the DSA, which is "bringing EU technology regulation into the 21st century." The European Parliament Plenary will vote on the amended text in January. Once approved, the EP will then begin negotiations with the Council of the European Union.
