Featured agenda item
10.45: A German approach: Antitrust in e-commerce
Cooley partner Becket McGrath is a featured panelist.
When it comes to vertical restraints, there’s a clear distinction between German views and those of other European jurisdictions. Our distinguished panel will examine the reasons for this difference of approach, looking particularly at Booking.com and “MFN” clauses on online platforms, and the idea of data as a “new currency.”
