Event Summary

The U.S. Justice Department’s recent landmark antitrust lawsuit against Apple has added fuel to the already heated debate about the role of competition policy in addressing concerns about “Big Tech.” As Apple faces allegations of monopolizing smartphone markets, the DOJ’s action raises critical questions about the legal standard for evaluating product design decisions, the role and limits of antitrust enforcement, and the future of American innovation amidst the government’s ongoing antitrust crusade against large technology companies. Is this a case about protecting competition, competitors, or something else still? Does the DOJ’s action pose a fundamental challenge to Apple’s business model? Who is likely to prevail in court?

Watch now for an expert panel discussion about the merits and implications of the DOJ’s lawsuit against Apple.
