In this issue:

Information exchanges between competitors have long challenged global competition authorities. Whether via trade associations or otherwise, such exchanges can be productive for consumers—enabling cost savings through collective know-how re improving products or production efficiency—or detrimental, hiding price-fixing or bid-rigging. And with data now a global product, such challenges will only increase in complexity. Starting with a case study of egregious competitive disregard, this colloquium looks at regulating such exchanges and, in particular, at the very real risks such exchanges pose for unwary companies. And in a special article, we join the debate that the USCC started by making antitrust fines officially a priority for 2015.
