.@SenMikeLee has introduced a new bill he says will "restore and protect competition in digital advertising by eliminating conflicts of interest that have allowed the leading platforms in the market to manipulate ad auctions and impose monopoly rents."https://t.co/tCd1JZaxEw— Int'l Ctr Law & Econ (@LawEconCenter) March 30, 2023
Remember when Amazon bought Whole Foods in 2017?— Brian Albrecht (@BrianCAlbrecht) March 28, 2023
Lina Khan warned the merger would expand Amazon's "fief." Yes. Amazon is a feudal lord in this worldview.

While I haven’t gotten into WSJ (I’ve tried) I have written many critical pieces Khan and only a few on Kanter. Why?— Brian Albrecht (@BrianCAlbrecht) March 3, 2023

The DMA stakeholder workshop on "App store related provisions" takes place today. Policymakers should take this opportunity to leave their comfort zone and grapple with six uncomfortable truths.?https://t.co/XztQOrJmz7— Lazar Radic (@laz_radic) March 6, 2023
I take a deep dive into European digital privacy law with @MBarczentewicz. Among other things, we discuss: The Irish DPC’s ruling against Meta, the French CNIL’s recent sanctions of Apple & Voodoo Games, & the future of EU–US data flows. https://t.co/80172YqUik— Eric Seufert (@eric_seufert) March 1, 2023
