The majority of MPs voted to continue, following the UK's withdrawal from the EU, to prevent the holders of intellectual property rights relating to a product from being able to control the distribution and resale of that product if it has been placed on the market anywhere in the UK or the European Economic Area.

The motion supported by the majority of MPs in this vote was:

The regulations change references to the European Economic Area to the United Kingdom - European Economic Area area.
