AAI’s Moss Says Antitrust Conversations Need to be About Data

Broadband Breakfast’s January 20 article, “Data Policy is Central to Antitrust Litigation, Say TPI Experts,” covered AAI President Diana Moss’s comments as a panelist at The Technology Policy Institute.

From the article:

When data gathering and usage are the lifeblood of the digital ecosystem, combating monopolies in the big tech industry will take more than just antitrust lawsuits, said industry experts during a Technology Policy Institute panel on Tuesday.

Antitrust litigation undervalues how much data drives tech businesses that operate in the digital space, said Diana Moss, president of the American Antitrust Institute.

The purpose of antitrust law is to protect consumers and workers and prevent the concentration of economic power in a few hands, she said, but the conversation needs to be about data—how it is gathered and used, and the implications those hold for consumers.
