Introduction to the joint study ‘Algorithms and Competition’ released by the Autorité de la Concurrence and the Bundeskartellamt
Gabriele Carovano | 14th January 2020
The rise of digital platforms and other innovations has transformed markets’ dynamics. Although digitalisation may concern different aspects of an economy, understanding these news markets’ dynamics is of paramount importance for competition authorities. Whereas some competition authorities (CAs) have conducted studies of their own, others have commissioned external reports. Moreover, also several international organisations have studied digital competition issues3 and recently the G7 competition authorities issued a “Common understanding” setting out their views on the challenges of digitalisation for competition policy.

The Trans-Atlantic Tech Backlash: Convergence on GAFA Antitrust
Dr. Aurelien Portuese | 11th September 2019
The American tech backlash has just started. All four tech juggernauts - Google, Amazon, Facebook and Apple, or 'GAFA' - are subject to unprecedented comeuppances; they, respectively, provide "search, social media, and some retail services online", as described in the DoJ's July 2019 announcement to launch investigations. Google and Amazon are both set to be investigated by the DoJ. The FTC has just imposed upon Facebook a whopping $5 billion fine, the largest ever. The FTC has also started investigations against Apple, and is now poised to scrutinize Google in a radical U-turn after closing its investigations against the company in 2013.
