Digital Markets Guide - First Edition
The digital economy is transforming day-to-day lives, with a rise in connectivity not only between people but also between vehicles, sensors, meters and other aspects of the Internet of Things. Yet, even as the Fourth Industrial Revolution accelerates, traditional concerns are keeping pace and the digital economy has also been a powerful force, increasing competition across a broad sweep of products and services. Practical and timely guidance for both practitioners and enforcers trying to navigate this fast-moving environment is thus critical.
The Digital Markets Guide provides just such detailed guidance and analysis. It examines both the current state of law and the direction of travel for the most important jurisdictions in which international businesses operate. The Guide draws on the wisdom and expertise of distinguished practitioners globally, and brings together unparalleled proficiency in the field to provide essential guidance on subjects as diverse as how pricing algorithms intersect with competition law and antitrust enforcement in certain tech mergers – for all competition professionals.
