Vertical Mergers in the Spotlight: Moss Tells National Journal That Deals are Getting a New Look

Diana Moss was quoted in the March 18, 2018 National Journal story Government’s Case Against AT&T-Time Warner Merger Will Test Silicon Valley.

We re dealing with a lot of vertical-integration issues, which are now being looked much more skeptically at than they have in the past, said Diana Moss, the president of the American Antitrust Institute.

Experts in Washington are increasingly turning their eye to Silicon Valley firms, which in many ways represent a new frontier for antitrust, raising a host of new questions. How do they compete? What are the markets that are involved? What strategies are used or not used? How is innovation affected? asked Moss, whose think tank is holding a roundtable on Thursday to examine the application of antitrust law to digital platforms.
