For the month of August, we bring you our summer CPI Chronicle edition, the “Antirust Antipasto.” This compilation of articles, for reading at the less hectic pace of summer, covers a cornucopia of antitrust jurisdictions ranging from the rapidly evolving Latin America and China to the EU and the U.S. on cutting edge topics such as algorithms and the conduct of digital platforms. Although diverse, there is a forward-looking theme that runs through many of the contributions as well as new insights into tried and true topics, such as global merger control and excessive pricing, and fresh new voices from emerging scholars.
In addition, the issue reaches out to deeper questions of the Ordoliberal standard of consumer choice or asking what is the definition of “big data.”
Looking down the road, we anticipate seeing many of you in Brussels on September 25, 2017 at the Steigenberger Hotel for the LeadershIP EU conference which will feature dialogues between experts about the evolving international IP and Antitrust policy issues in the U.S. and the EU. CPI is proud to be one of the sponsors of the 2017 LeadershIP EU conference.
In the meantime, we sincerely hope you enjoy reading this summer 2017 “Antitrust Antipasto.”
As always, thank you to our great panel of authors this month.
