28th Annual Communications and Competition Conference
24 Apr - 25 Apr 2017
Where is the bottleneck? Network, device, content or data? Privacy issues
Monday 24 April (1545 - 1700)
Communications Law Committee (Lead)
This panel will discuss a number of questions: what is the new essential facility in the digital communications era? Still network? Or data? Or content? Or device? How does privacy play a role in all this? And how it may affect the competition: may the data become a source of market power and whether the availability of data can distort competition or can a conduct involving data infringe competition laws?
