Event Details

With the internet revolution and the growing impact of the digital economy, we have seen the decline of some gatekeepers and the rise of other gatekeepers. With the forthcoming DMA proposing asymmetric regulation of gatekeepers, this webinar considers whether the proposal is covering the right gatekeepers. We will also be discussing what impact gatekeepers have on startups.
