Online Search, Antitrust and Google: In Search of a Pro-Consumer Policy
September 16, 2011 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Tech companies that become dominant inevitably come into the antitrust cross-hairs. Google is the latest example and is now the subject of investigations in both the U.S. and Europe over allegations it has abused its dominant position in online search. A distinguished group of experts will discuss the complex issues the antitrust agencies must address, including market definition, market power, existence and effects of “search bias”, the availability of effective remedies, and, ultimately, what is in the consumer’s best interest.
