Big data and competition law conference (Brussels, 25 October 2016)

The Big Data Study - jointly conducted by the French Autorité de la Concurrence and the German Bundeskartellamt - is the first comprehensive analysis of data-related issues from a competition law perspective. The study provides guidance on how enforcers are likely to look at this type of issues in the future as data protection is outside the scope of competition law. 

The conference that will take place in Brussels, on 25 October 2016 will assess the study findings and explore the relationship between competition law and big data, namely in the context of mergers of over-the-top players.
