    Politicians, regulators, and enforcement authorities are increasingly focused on large multisided technology platforms. Advocates for greater antitrust enforcement in the sector have expressed concerns around whether a few large platforms (e.g., Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Alphabet’s Google) have taken unlawful steps to acquire and maintain dominant positions in the economy. Stakeholders in different jurisdictions have conducted a range of policy reviews to better understand whether traditional antitrust analysis should be adapted to address concerns raised. Enforcers are increasingly turning to investigations (and in some cases enforcement actions), but questions remain as to whether additional enforcement is warranted or if greater agency activity will chill innovation.

    Agency approaches vary in Europe, the US, Australia, and Asia, but all seek to come to grips with common themes. In recent years, the European Commission imposed a series of record-breaking fines on Google. The European Commission and European national competition authorities are currently investigating other platform providers for other forms of alleged exclusionary or discriminatory conduct. The US antitrust authorities recently launched broad market investigations that are still in relatively early stages focused on potential complaints around similar theories of harm. Australia has undertaken a broad market study and proposed measures to support more active enforcement efforts. National competition authorities in Germany have brought enforcement actions against Facebook for so-called exploitative conduct related to privacy terms that blur the line between traditional antitrust and consumer protection concerns. China has taken a more cautious approach due to the distinct competitive dynamics of its national markets, but shows signs of increasing scrutiny.

    This program will identify the key policy developments impacting antitrust enforcement in the sector, review areas of potential investigative (or enforcement) focus, and explain areas of potential convergence and divergence across jurisdictions.
