Market power of online platforms: Global Trends in Competition Policy

An overview of the actions taken by national competition policies in markets dominated by online platforms to address concerns such as including market tipping, killer acquisitions, exclusionary practices and the exploitation of users.

Competition policy in the digital arena has attracted increasing attention by policymakers, regulators and end users around the world. To some extent, this is a natural consequence of the increasing economic, political and social importance of this sphere, as well as its disruptive effects on existing modes of activity.

Certain online platforms feature unprecedented scale and scope economies, and network effects. Markets may tip in favour of powerful market players with a gatekeeper position. Acquisitions of potential disruptors may further amplify this trend.

Online platforms with market power may seek to exclude competitors either from their core market or from linked markets that they aim to capture. They may also exploit their users by imposing unfair terms and conditions.

This one-hour free webinar will provide an overview of the actions taken by national competition policies in markets dominated by online platforms to address these and other related concerns, including market tipping, killer acquisitions, exclusionary practices and the exploitation of users.

When? Thursday, 25 February 2021 - from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM CET / GMT +1
