2020 has been a busy year for antitrust in the tech industry. Before the COVID 19 pandemic, the Federal Trade Commission launched investigations into past mergers in the tech industry, with the expectation that they’d be a lot tougher on companies trying to absorb their rivals. Both the DOJ and the FTC have active investigations into the big tech companies. The House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee also brought together the CEOs of Amazon, Facebook, Google, and Apple as part of an investigation into the companies’ dominance online.

In this episode of Tech Talk, you will hear from Avery Gardiner, CDT’s General Counsel and Senior Fellow for Competition, Data, and Power as we discuss what’s currently happening in the sphere of Antitrust and Competition, and what might be on the horizon. 

Let’s get ready to talk tech!
