The final stage of negotiations around the EU Digital Markets Act are underway. This column highlights five key sets of issues that remain under debate and provides an economic perspective. The authors support several of the proposed amendments, such as extending the prohibition on parity clauses and introducing new rules to address the anti-competitive use of default settings. They also agree with the intention of the latest proposals on self-preferencing, interoperability and data portability, and remedy options, but suggest some modifications.
