The digital economy is gradually gaining traction through a variety of recent technological developments, including the introduction of the Internet of things, artificial intelligence and markets for data. This innovative book contains contributions from leading competition law scholars who map out and investigate the anti-competitive effects that are developing in the digital economy. Competition Law for the Digital Economy critically evaluates how the digital economy differs from the old economy and the ways in which competition law interacts with other legal regimes of data protection and sector specific regulations. This book also considers the broader issues, addressing the possible remedies to be imposed in the case of restrictions on digital markets. This timely book asserts that whilst the digital economy is currently in its infancy, competition law should play a crucial role in shaping the competitive digital ecosystem. Providing the general perspectives on competition policy and the application of traditional and new regulatory tools for the digital economy, this analytical book will be a key resource for competition law students and academics, while also appealing to practitioners.
