Big Data and Merger Control in the EU

Jay Modrall, Norton Rose explores Big Data and Merger Control in the EU.

ABSTRACT: EU antitrust authorities have taken a leading role in exploring antitrust concerns around ‘big data.’ The UK CMA announced the formation of a new technology team to keep pace with the use of algorithms, artificial intelligence and big data in 2017, and the French and German authorities published a joint study on big data and antitrust in 2016. Compared to these national authorities, the European Commission has kept a relatively low profile, although Commissioner Vestager has commented on big data and algorithm issues in several speeches.
