This paper puts forward recommendations to ensure the DSA maintains the goalsof the proposal while safeguarding the advertising-funded model of TV and radio broadcasters:
- Display advertising should be understood as encompassing all formats;
- Onlineplatforms should be understood to include advertising servers;
- Hosting service providers should be required to comply with the consumer and privacy standards attached to the content disseminated, when displaying advertising;
- Online platforms and very large online platforms (VLOPs) when displaying advertising should provide further information, enabling recipients to understand the selection of one service or product over another.
