Internet Platforms and Competition Policy

With Keynote by Former FTC Commissioner Julie Brill

Thursday March 30, 2017

12:15pm  – 1:30pm

Renaissance Hotel, Downtown DC

As the internet economy matures, antitrust regulators around the world have increasingly turned their sights on internet companies.  However, the dynamic nature of online competition — with low barriers to entry, a heavy reliance on data-driven innovation, and the interlinked nature of multi-sided markets — calls into question some common assumptions of antitrust law and merits a more sophisticated analysis of market competitiveness.  In this event, participants will examine such themes as the competitive significance of data, considerations in the analysis of multi-sided markets, and the nature of platform competition.

With opening remarks by Julie Brill, Partner, Hogan Lovells & former FTC Commissioner, our panel will feature:  

  • John Fingleton, CEO, Fingleton Associates
  • Hanno Kaiser, Partner, Latham & Watkins
  • Geoffrey Manne, Executive Director, International Center for Law & Economics
  • Daniel O’Connor, Vice President of Public Policy, Computer & Communications Industry Association (moderator)

Registration will open at 11:45am and the program will begin promptly at 12:15pm. Complimentary lunch will be served.
