Abstract

There is a sea change in regulators’ approach to competition and big data. In the past, competition regulators tended to dismiss Big Data as a competitive concern, generally believing Big Data uses to be irrelevant or pro-competitive in digital markets. But in recent years that attitude is changing, and regulators are becoming increasingly concerned over the possible anticompetitive conduct by internet industry leaders from their control over massive amounts of user data and are starting to take action.
