Public Policy Conference on Competition Among Online Platforms - Thursday, October 10, 2013

LEC Public Policy Conference on Competition Among Online Platforms

                Law & Economics Center           

                Summary           

On the morning of October 10, the Law & Economics Center will host a public policy conference on Competition Among Online Platforms.

Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google each began by offering vastly different services and products:  online shopping, computers, social networking, and search.  Today, however, these companies compete with one another across a variety of dimensions.  This public policy conference will explore the extent of this competition, and topics such as defining markets and assessing market power, lock-in, and the competitive implications of open versus closed platforms.

A second panel will also explore the role that data collection plays for online platforms, including how data collection and privacy policies should enter into antitrust analysis, and the extent to which privacy regulation affects competition.
