Disruptive innovations and competition law enforcement
The impact of disruptive innovations on competition law enforcement
Disruptive innovations raise questions for competition law enforcement, for instance when considering mergers between disruptive innovators and incumbents, or exclusionary conduct by incumbents against innovators. Incumbents not only have an incentive to destroy an innovation by merger or exclusion, but might also inadvertently kill it through acquisition.
This session at the 2015 Global Forum on Competition explored the competition law enforcers’ dilemma in merger review, for instance whether to impose behavioural remedies and also explored issues related to exclusionary conduct.
