    Antitrust and Zero Price Products

    12 PM EST

    The digital revolution has led to the wide distribution of goods and services at zero prices. In exchange for customers' attention and information, firms provide "free" software, platforms, applications, and content. Yet antitrust enforcement remains rooted in traditional price theory, focused primarily on price competition. Can antitrust principles and methodologies adapt to protect the competitive dimensions introduced by zero-price products? Should they? How should markets be defined and power be measured? What remedies are sensible?
