Guest lecture at the University of Bonn on data protection and antitrust law

Guest lec­tu­re at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bonn on data pro­tec­tion and anti­trust law
On 24 Janu­ary 2023, our part­ner Dr Sebas­ti­an Lou­ven was invi­ted to give a guest lec­tu­re at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Bonn. The topic was a spe­cial sec­tion on data (pro­tec­tion) and anti­trust law.

Some of the aspects addres­sed the­re are also reflec­ted in the pro­cee­dings of the Fede­ral Car­tel Office against the social media plat­form Face­book, which are curr­ent­ly still the sub­ject of a refer­ral to the ECJ (case num­ber C‑252/21). A decis­i­on is curr­ent­ly still pen­ding. Howe­ver, the opi­ni­on of Advo­ca­te Gene­ral Ran­tos could be used very well. Sebas­ti­an Lou­ven repres­ents the vzbv as an inter­vening par­ty in the­se proceedings.
