Join TPI for a Conference – The AT&T/Time Warner Decision: What it Means for Technology and Media Mergers

by

Judge Richard Leon’s decision in the Justice Department’s challenge to the AT&T/Time Warner decision is one of the most anticipated antitrust decisions in recent years. The decision is likely to influence not only how content providers, distributors, and platforms operate and interact with one another, but the entire landscape of vertical mergers more generally.

  • Will the decision affect which mergers companies pursue?
  • Which companies will be targets for mergers?
  • Does the decision affect horizontal mergers?
  • What industries are likely to be affected?

Join the Technology Policy Institute as we bring together a panel of experts to provide insight and answers into what Judge Leon’s AT&T/Time Warner decision means to the merger and antitrust landscape moving forward.
