In response to the House Judiciary Committee’s announcement that it will begin a study of the impact of dominant technology platforms, the Institute for Local Self-Reliance released the following statement:
This is a critically important step. By gathering and documenting detailed, real-world information about the impact that dominant tech platforms are having on competition and innovation, the Committee is building a comprehensive factual record that will enable Congress and the antitrust agencies to act. We anticipate that this will begin a process that will lead to both legislative and enforcement action to check the power of dominant tech platforms and redress the harms they are causing.
