Antitrust and 21st Century Bigness: Panel 4 - The Future - Proposed Change: Legislative and Regulatory, Domestic and the World
Big Tech and Bigness. These issues continue to dominate the antitrust agenda in the United States and throughout the world. Three years ago, we examined these issues at a conference held at NYU School of Law, at a time when US enforcement agencies had yet to act. We now return for a second edition of that conference, at a time when antitrust agencies around the world—including in the US—are taking on the challenge. We will ask, what progress has been made? What obstacles have been encountered? What are the prospects for the future?
In the afternoon, for the third panel of the Antitrust and 21st Century Bigness symposium, moderator Eleanor Fox was joined by Matthew Braovac, Evan Chesler, Andrew Heimert, and Diana Moss. The panel explored if competition laws need to be updated to address anticompetitive conduct by Big Tech firms, what legislative and/or regulatory changes are desirable. Should institutional arrangements expand the boundaries of antitrust, possibly including unfair competition, consumer protection and data/privacy protection? What are the implications of the varying national solutions for world competition?
The Antitrust and 21st Century Bigness symposium was held on February 24, 2023, at the NYU School of Law.
