EU Lawmakers Approve Sweeping Digital Regulations

European lawmakers approved two sweeping new pieces of digital regulation, paving the way for clashes between regulators and some of the world’s biggest tech companies over how the rules should be applied.

The European Parliament on Tuesday voted its stamp of approval for the two laws—one focused on anticompetitive behavior, the other on content deemed illegal in Europe—after reaching an agreement on them with European Union member states in the spring.
