Antitrust and the Dynamics of Competition in High-Tech Industries

Antitrust and the Dynamics of Competition in 
High-Tech Industries


 Podcast Available Here


Registration  8:30, Program – 9:00 
October 22, 2010
Polaris Suite
Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center
1300 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington DC


Antitrust enforcement in technology industries is complex, in part because the sector is characterized by more or less continuous innovation.  The global nature of the sector, combined with oversight by multiple enforcement agencies, also presents its own unique issues for antitrust policy.  Given these complexities, how can antitrust policy be formulated to promote innovation in these dynamic sectors? 


Please join the Technology Policy Institute for a half-day event on antitrust policy in the technology sector on October 22 at the Ronald Reagan Building.  The event is part of the TPI project “Maintaining U.S. Leadership in Information and Communications Technology: Antitrust and the Dynamics of Competition in ‘New Economy’ Industries.”  Academic experts will discuss their papers prepared for the project on such topics as recent enforcement actions, vertical integration, and antitrust implications for cloud computing.
