Tech&Law Breakfast: Understanding the Google Wars
Understanding the Google Wars
By Christian Bergqvist
Christian Bergqvist will in this presentation unlock the global anti-trust war against the IT company Google. This will be undertaken by not only explaining the legal merits of EU 2017 Google Shopping Decision, but also the larger narrative where IT Companies as Google, and the other FAANG’ (Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google), creates strong oppositions across jurisdictions.
An opposition often resting on a perception of unchecked abuse and anti-competitive behaviour and a regulatory environment prone to under-enforcement. To understand this its required to go back to the American Civil War, the two Sherman’s and how the Reagan revolution yielded a minimalistic anti-trust system in US.
Christian Bergqvist is Associate Professor at the Center for Market and Economic Law (CME) an expert in competition law with a special focus on single company behavior.
