The joint statement by the antitrust regulators of Australia, Germany and the UK this week was a chance for antitrust officials to call for sharper tools to manage mergers and acquisitions — with particular regard to fast-moving digital markets.

Google’s United States Supreme Court copyright win against Oracle over the development of the Android operating system was a huge development, with the case spending the past 10 years bouncing around courts in the US.

Australia’s world-first antitrust review of Facebook and Google’s business models has spawned a new generation of regulation and enforcement, with the country’s competition watchdog using consumer lawsuits, market inquiries and merger reviews to create one of the western world’s most assertive regulatory regimes.

Expert witnesses that struggle to converse in a way that is accessible to both judges and juries and who can’t write a report that doesn’t run into thousands of pages may be doing more harm than good to the antitrust case they are supporting. According to a judge who spoke at a recent American Bar Association antitrust conference, the quality of an…
 
It has happened: The California Privacy Protection Agency has become the first standalone privacy enforcer to be established in the United States.

The rollercoaster ride that shares of GameStop went on earlier this year had little to do with the value of the US videogame and electronics retailer and more to do with a “short squeeze” — a buying frenzy designed to hurt those who had bet on the share value going down.

A landmark antitrust lawsuit targeting Google over its management of digital advertising services is underway in a Texas court, with a preliminary hearing this week focusing on how the 10 US states behind the legal action, as well as Google itself, will safeguard evidence.

The underrepresentation of African Americans in the two US departments that cover antitrust is stark.

It’s hard to understate the significance of the two lawsuits targeting Facebook that were announced in the United States this week.

Following Joe Biden’s victory in the US presidential election, attention has now turned to what policy settings are likely to be affected by the new administration.

As corruption and embezzlement scandals go, the 1MDB affair was breathtaking in both its scale and its audacity.

A radical plan by the European Union to impose a levy on carbon-intensive imports is increasingly popular among national leaders, although it remains unclear what shape it’s likely to take — a tariff, a tax or an extension of the bloc’s internal Emissions Trading System.
