Abstract

This paper, presented at the Oxford Conference "Online Markets and Offline Welfare Effects," explores two areas that were not the focus of the conference but that are quite important to how competition law will deal with Internet markets and their challenges: (1) the role of private rights of action and (2) the role of legal regimes other than the European Union and the United States. The paper argues that private actions will be needed to fill gaps in public enforcement and that regimes outside the EU and US may provide necessary perspective on Internet market issues through their consideration of "public interest" factors, as required in many of their statutes.

Keywords: Antitrust, Internet, Private Actions, Public Interest, Foreign Enforcement
