Economic Issues Involving Platforms, Privacy and the Digital Economy 

Feb. 16, 2021

The CBA Competition Law Section's Canadian Competition Law Review Committee and Economics and Law Committee present:

Economic Issues Involving Platforms, Privacy and the Digital Economy

February 16, 2021 | 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM Eastern
Online (Zoom)

Platforms raise a number of interesting and complex economic issues in the digital economy that are currently being considered by agencies around the world. These issues involve a wide variety of novel topics, such as (a) the analysis of network effects in the context of multi-sided platforms; (b) the implications of this analysis for regulation and competition enforcement; (c) the interaction between privacy and competition and whether privacy regulation risks further solidifying the dominance of big corporations. Our panelists will discuss these economic issues and the current (and potential future) frameworks used when analyzing platforms and the digital economy.
