Powerhouse ABA webinar on the FTC’s investigation of Google this Friday
The suit against Google was to be this century’s first major antitrust case and a model for high technology industries in the future. Now that we have passed the investigative hangover, the mood has turned reflective, and antitrust experts are now looking to place this case into its proper context. If it were brought, would the case have been on sure legal footing? Was this a prudent move for consumers? Was the FTC’s disposition of the case appropriate?
Join me this Friday, January 11, 2013 at 12:00 pm – 1:45 pm ET for an ABA Antitrust Section webinar to explore these questions, among others. I will be sharing the panel with an impressive group:
- J. Thomas Rosch (speaking, as far as I know, for the first time as a former Commissioner (Josh is supposed to be sworn in tomorrow));
- Jonathan M. Jacobson;
- Gary L. Reback; and
- Charles F. (Rick) Rule
Hill B. Welford will moderate. Registration is open to everyone here and the outlay is zero. Remember — these events are not technically free because you have to give up some of your time, but I would be delighted if you did.
