David Evans (University of Chicago Law, University College London Law), suggests The Middle Way On Applying Antitrust to Information Technology.
ABSTRACT: Antitrust analysis ought to account for special features of IT—just like it ought to account for special features of any industry under consideration. But there’s no particular reason to focus additional antitrust resources on this sector. There is also no particular reason to add it to the sorry list of industries that have finagled an antitrust exemption. Antitrust policy towards information technology is interesting mainly because it helps surface broader questions concerning how we do antitrust.
