Abstract

This chapter analyzes Big Data and Big Data abuses of market power. The chapter provides an overview of developments under both EU and US case law relevant to such abuses as well as some of the economic underpinnings of such an analysis. While there are not many cases specific to this interface, a number of related areas of law both in the merger and conduct context provide a template for how competition authorities, courts, and academics should frame such issues.

Keywords: competition law, antitrust, big data, monopolization, abuse of dominance
