Can the European Union Rein in Big Tech?

Can the European Union Rein in Big Tech?

  • Case
  • Teaching Notes
Abstract

In an effort to regulate major U.S. tech firms, the European Union (EU) announced in January its Digital Services and Markets Act, which seeks to hold companies like Google and Amazon accountable for illegal content or goods distributed on their platforms and prevent them from engaging in antitrust violations. The new legislation positions the EU as a potential leader in regulating Big Tech, and it coincides with government scrutiny over some companies’ anticompetitive practices in the United States. The case asks students to discuss the EU’s action and to speculate how it may impact similar proceedings happening in the United States and other countries.
