Increasingly, competition enforcement in digital markets is moving on from a discussion of whether established competition tools and laws are sufficient for the new challenges of the online world, to specific and targeted enforcement against tech companies. This fully updated E-commerce Competition Enforcement Guide, edited by Claire Jeffs, looks at this evolution and discusses its impact on companies, consumers and indeed competition itself.

Drawing on the collective wisdom and expertise of distinguished experts from around the world, the Guide provides insight on the differing approaches adopted by enforcement agencies and whether a balance is being struck between maintaining a vigilant approach to the digital economy and allowing competition to flourish.
