SYNTHESIS

Dame Vivien Rose started by reflecting on the results of the initial ad-hoc poll on the question “are UK antitrust in the digital sector fit for purpose?” (39% No, 25% Yes, 35% Do not know). She believes that these answers, evenly balanced, illustrate a variety of sentiments that will be echoed in the panel.

Mike Walker began by recognising that digital platforms do provide great products and have proven particularly relevant in the context of COVID-induced lockdowns. However, this should not be considered as a get-out-of-jail-free card when it comes to antitrust infringements.
