In Campaign US’ article entitled, ‘The expected implications of Google’s Epic antitrust loss,’ AAI’s Acting President Kathleen Bradish expressed optimism about the Google-Epic Games antitrust ruling, stating that it is “heartening” to witness a jury comprehend such a complex industry issue. Despite Google’s plan to appeal, Bradish believes the verdict signifies a notable moment, challenging the notion that existing antitrust laws cannot effectively address concerns related to Big Tech. From the article:
Google said it would appeal the verdict, so “the battle is far from over,” said Kathleen Bradish, acting president of the American Antitrust Institute.
Though she added it is “heartening” to see an antitrust issue like this from a “complex industry” can be understood by a jury. The nine-person jury deliberated for just over three hours, per reports.
