According to a report from Reuters, the European Commission is preparing a draft to regulate the practices of online companies like Apple, Google, eBay, Bing, and Amazon, due to their power in the online market.
The regulation will impact e-commerce, app stores, and search engines. These online aggregators will need to disclose their ranking search results and why they delist some services.
Google Play and Apple’s App Store will have to specify to an app owner why the app was delisted or suspended, and the online platforms will have to implement a notice period of at least 15 days for changes to their terms and conditions.
According to Reuters, the proposal is expected to be public in April, an then submitted to the national governments and the European Parliament.
