Contribution to the DAJV Transatlantic Legal Conference 2023

The Ger­man-Ame­ri­can Lawy­er’s Asso­cia­ti­on has invi­ted me to speak at their Trans­at­lan­tic Legal Con­fe­rence this year. The event will take place on 17 March 2023. I will be spea­king on a panel on data and mer­ger con­trol. It will basi­cal­ly cover data-rela­ted issues in anti­trust mer­ger con­trol. Just a few buz­zwords on this:

  • Signi­fi­cant dome­stic acti­vi­ty in gra­tui­tous busi­ness models.
  • Obli­ga­ti­on to notify
  • Mar­ket domi­nan­ce test and access to data
  • SIEC, Inno­va­ti­on Theo­ry of Harm and Dimi­nis­hing Inten­si­ty of Competition

The full pro­gram­me is available here.
