These comments were submitted to the FTC as part of its hearings on “Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century.” In these comments, we analyze three overarching topics relevant for the regulation of data: (1) The role of privacy as an element of non-price competition; (2) The potential privacy harms that could arise from price discrimination; and (3) How, if at all, data possession could serve as a barrier to entry.
