11 AM EST
This teleconference will focus on the sensitive information flow that may arise between retailers and their suppliers and/or online platforms, particularly when the latter are entering the retail space, which raises the risk of collusive/market foreclosing outcomes. The panel will discuss using hypothetical scenarios the risks and explore ways to mitigate them. It will also discuss the current enforcement environment in selected jurisdictions (US, EU, Germany and Canada).
