Is Big Data the New IP for Antitrust?
12 PM EST
The program aims to explore antitrust’s new relationship with Big Data by considering antitrust’s old relationship with another adjacent area—intellectual property. We have spent over a century exploring the relationship between antitrust and IP and have developed a useful set of accepted principles. Enter the Internet and the increasingly important role of data—user data, in particular—to online services. Only recently have we begun to hear that Big Data may have competition implications. Can we apply anything we have learned about antitrust’s relationship with IP to the competition issues that Big Data may raise? Is IP a helpful analogy or an imprecise comparison?
