Hausfeld & NYU School of Law Present - Antitrust and 21st Century Bigness: Dealing with Tech Platforms in a Globalized World (2020)
Antitrust laws in the United States have evolved with the economy and technological change, moving from the trustbusting of Standard Oil to the last of the “Big Cases” – AT&T and Microsoft. Today the antitrust laws face a new challenge. Giant platform companies such as Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Apple have achieved unprecedented power over technological markets and everyday life. The growth of these companies raises the question whether existing U.S. antitrust laws are capable of checking their power and whether we have strayed too far from the Sherman Act’s intended purpose. In this Symposium, panelists addressed these issues and the solutions that have been advanced in the United States and in Europe.
The Antitrust and 21st Century Bigness conference will be held in person on February 28, 2020, at the NYU School of Law.
