Antitrust and Tech: Europe and the United States Differ, and It Matters

Luke Froeb, Vanderbilt and Greg Werden have a new short paper Antitrust and Tech: Europe and the United States Differ, and It Matters.

ABSTRACT: European enforcers have brought high-profile antitrust cases against the tech giants, and both activists and members of Congress are calling for action in the United States. This short note identifies ten hard-wired differences between the European and American enforcement regimes that make very it difficult for the US antitrust enforcement agencies to emulate their European counterparts. This note also identifies a few other points of contrast between Europe and the United States that affect antitrust enforcement against tech giants going forward.
