Back in July, leaders of Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google gave evidence before the House Judiciary Committee’s Antitrust Subcommittee. The Subcommittee this week published the findings of its investigation into the state of competition in the digital markets and the challenges posed by the business strategies of U.S. Big Tech.
The 449 page report recognizes the impact of platforms on competition and freedom of press, and includes calls for sweeping changes to antitrust laws.
"Our investigation leaves no doubt that there is a clear and compelling need for Congress and the antitrust enforcement agencies to take action that restores competition, improves innovation, and safeguards our democracy. This Report outlines a roadmap for achieving that goal" Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (NY-10) and Antitrust Subcommittee Chairman David N. Cicilline (RI-01).
