The discussion is no longer focusing on whether or not Europe should have regulation relating to the functioning of online markets, but rather what is it going to look like. The European Commission is grouping together its initiatives relating to online markets, including a proposal to regulate gatekeeper platforms, in the Digital Markets Act. This is separate from the Digital Services Act Package proposed by DG Connect, as a revision of the e-commerce directive amongst other things, but nevertheless a shift is happening in Europe. Across the Atlantic, the US House Judiciary Committee Antitrust Report on Big Tech, followed by the DOJ's Complaint against Google, has also signalled a big shift in US antitrust enforcement.
This webinar is dedicated to a discussion of these shifts and questions whether the changes are sensible.
