Specific issues or future development that we have identified and how a solution will be explored. For the last decades, technology is evolving at an exponential pace. Digital platforms are part of the routine of billions around the globe to perform essential and daily activities: communication, shopping, eating, entertainment, transportation and working. The digital markets are a phenomenon to be embraced and there is no turning back. However, such markets have several specific characteristics that differ from traditional markets, mainly due to significant network effects and huge scalability, raising new concerns from the competition perspective. Data are very important for the successful operation of the players in the digital markets. Due to personal data collection and big data processing, the platforms can provide a unique service that seems to be constantly improving with greater use by the members/clients. Sayings like “data is the new gold” and “if you’re not paying for the product, you are the product” are common in several countries and languages, evidencing that there is a potential conflict between data protection and antitrust and risks of under-regulation / over-regulation. In addition, policymakers are seeing the need for access to data to enable competition and new business models in certain markets. The solution to properly handle digital markets is under construction, with several efforts from antitrust authorities, policymakers, scholars and international think tanks, with no conclusive or global consensual view on the relevant topics related to digital markets. We see completely new regulations, such as the Digital Markets Acts under EU law, and authorities and policymakers trying to cope with the power of the big players in the digital markets. The panel will address these challenges and discuss if it is time to rethink the scope of the antitrust law or if the current instruments are sufficient and how clients can ensure that their respective business models remain successful.
