Developments in Art. 102 + Competition Law in Digital Markets

with one comment


The Academy of European Law (ERA) has kindy invited us to take part in two upcoming events. Given the topics, it was an offer we couldn’t refuse.

On 12 April I will be chairing an afternoon workshop titled “Abuse of Dominance: Recent Developments and Practical Implications”. We will discuss the Intel Judgment, the Google Shopping case as well as Excessive Pricing following Akka/Laa.  The speakers will be Brice Allibert (DG Comp), Oliver Bethell (Google),  Thomas Graf (Cleary Gottlieb) and Agustin Reyna (BEUC). You can see the programme and info on registration here. It will take place in Brussels but will be streamed live.

And on 4 July, Pablo and I will be jointly teaching a 4hour session on competition in digital markets at ERA’s Summer Course on European Antitrust Law (which I attended as a student 13 years ago!). Our session will focus on vertical e-restraints, algorithmic collussion, multi-sided markets and abuse of dominance in the online world. All relevant information is available here.
