Josh Wright (FTC) argues for Evidence-Based Antitrust Enforcement in the Technology Sector.
ABSTRACT: This article is based on a presentation of remarks presented on February 23, 2013 at the inauguration of the ICT Competition Laboratory, the Competition Law Center, Beijing, China. This represents my first public statements as a Commissioner and generally concerns antitrust in high-tech markets. Specifically, I would like to discuss the concept of "evidence-based" antitrust enforcement, the importance of its application to the technology sector, and some recent experiences involving the Federal Trade Commission's enforcement efforts in high-tech markets.
