Examining the American Innovation and Choice Online Act

May 19, 2022   02:00pm ET   Virtual Event

Watch the Event

Congress has been considering legislation in recent months that would mark the most significant change to antitrust law in a generation. At issue is whether the bills would increase competition in digital markets, and what attendant impacts may be anticipated.

A recent comment letter from the American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section, the world’s largest professional organization for antitrust and competition law and consumer protection, discussed one of those bills, the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (S. 2992), at length in an effort to assist with ongoing consideration of the measure.

Professor Sean Sullivan, a member of the ABA Antitrust Law Section, will join representatives from ICLE and UVA in his individual capacity to discuss AICOA, the Section’s comments, and what reform could mean for consumers, digital platforms, and the future of antitrust law.

Please join us on May 19, 2022, at 2 p.m. ET for this discussion.
