Antitrust Enforcement and Privacy Standards

Renato Nazzini, King's College London – The Dickson Poon School of Law addresses Antitrust Enforcement and Privacy Standards.

ABSTRACT: The current prominence of digital platforms that compete for customers’ attention by offering them free services and generate revenue by monetising the data obtained from customers on different markets, for example on online advertising markets, has brought to the forefront of the antitrust debate the question as to whether privacy standards are a parameter of antitrust enforcement. This paper asks what role, if any, the standard of privacy protection offered by online platforms to consumers plays in antitrust enforcement.
