Revisiting FTC’s 2013 Google Decision

Research output: Other contributionNet publication - Internet publicationCommunication

However, most of the FTC file has been available since 2015, and but for a failure to look into Android, it has aged well. The FTC’s decision rested on a careful evaluation of the prospect of prevailing in a court case, and devoid of this, how the best possible settlement could be secured.
