On March 30, join CCIA for a luncheon event featuring a special keynote address from Former FTC Commissioner Julie Brill as she speaks about the latest topics in the application of antitrust law to internet platforms.
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.
