CFA and Public Knowledge Submit Comments on Competition and Markets Authority’s New Pro-Competition Approach for Digital Markets

CFA and Public Knowledge submitted comments in response to the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA)’s call for information for a new pro-competition approach for digital markets. The groups provided feedback on three key areas—scope of a new approach, remedies for addressing harm, and procedure and structure of a new pro-competition approach. Recommendations included focusing on firms with “bottleneck power”, encouraging competition through interoperability and non-discrimination rules, and prioritizing speed, flexibility, and privacy in the CMA’s efforts to promote competition and innovation in the digital marketplace.
