As the Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Bill advances in the UK, there is a growing tendency towards creating regulatory structures specifically focused on competition in digital markets. The UK’s model differs from the European Union’s Digital Markets Act (DMA) and Germany’s Article 19 (a) in its approach to platforms.
Understanding the underlying rationale behind each institutional design in a different jurisdiction is central for grasping the transformations of Competition Law itself. Although so far Brazil has not adopted a corresponding regulatory strategy, debates concerning digital platforms have been gaining ground in Congress.
In this context, FGV São Paulo Law School’s Competition, Public Policy, Innovation and Technology Nucleus (Comppit) promotes the present webinar in order to assess competition-based regulatory drafts and strategies by comparing approaches and their respective challenges in terms of competition enhancement, market balancing and the reinforcement of ongoing mechanisms for online consumers’ protection.
The discussion will happen in English and there will not be simultaneous interpretation.
