Big Tech Is Not Going Away: Next Steps in Competition Policy
This event has passed.
While debate on legislation addressing “Big Tech” and antitrust concerns could come as soon as next week, BPC is announcing a new project to identify bipartisan recommendations on competition and antitrust, focusing on interoperability and portability. Regardless of congressional action, macro-level policy considerations surrounding big tech remain and are likely to reemerge.
Data portability and interoperability have often been promoted as ways to increase competition between digital platforms, but there is a debate on when and how data portability and interoperability could be implemented and how effective they would be in boosting competition and innovation.
Join BPC on June 1 for a virtual discussion with the top thought leaders on antitrust and data privacy.
Pre-recorded keynote remarks from:
President, CareJourney; Former Federal Chief Technology Officer of the United States
Panel discussion with:
Dr. Diana L. Moss
President, American Antitrust Institute
Dr. Mark Jamison
Director and Gunter Professor, Public Utility Research Center, University of Florida
James G. Dinan University Professor at The University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School
Senior Researcher, Technology Competition, Consumer Reports
Associate Director, BPC
Future events in the new project series will address:
- Mergers and Acquisitions: Critics of big tech companies have accused them of engaging in anticompetitive M&A activity. Some members of Congress have expressed interest in strengthening standards for companies engaging in M&A to allow for greater scrutiny.
- Digital Platforms’ Online Practices: Critics have accused large digital platforms of using business practices, like self-preferencing and playing a gatekeeper for digital services (through app stores and online advertising), to stifle competition and innovation.
