Please join our expert panel for a cutting-edge discussion of big data antitrust risks across a range of jurisdictions. Discussion topics will include:  (1) Which elements of big data are antitrust-relevant?  (2)  Can data be a source of market power?  (3) How does the collection of data influence market transparency?  (4) Should big data affect antitrust analysis?  What precedents exist in merger review cases, dominance cases, and cartel cases?  (5)  The use of big data by antitrust authorities, including a discussion of CADE’s “Brain Project” in Brazil, the Canadian Competition Bureau’s “Big Data” analytical paper and enforcement stance, and the approach to big data issues in the US antitrust agencies in the Trump Era.
