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.
Critical Acclaim
'This exceptional compilation addresses the major topics occupying the minds of competition law experts around the world today. Questions regarding the adequacy of competition law to respond to the challenges of digital markets are subjected to rigorous and original analysis by leading scholars in an important and fresh contribution to the literature. Big data, privacy, artificial intelligence, platforms and enforcement approaches are all placed under the microscope. A must-read to get across the critical issues facing competition in a digital economy.'
– Caron Beaton-Wells, University of Melbourne, Australia

'This very important and exciting volume addresses virtually all of the phases of competition law and policy in the digital economy. The volume brings together the research and thinking of scholars, both emerging and established, from around the world. The chapters give penetrating analyses of the major cutting-edge issues that the world is hungry to understand, including access to data, do the digital behemoths have market power, is data privacy a competition dimension, how to analyze big data acquisitions of start-ups, and what remedies fit the new digital market problems?'
– Eleanor Fox, New York University, US
