Digital Markets, Competition & Antitrust
Working to protect the rights of companies and individuals who invest and innovate in the digital world.

Instead, we promote smart policy that examines consumer benefits when measuring how well the market is functioning. If competitive and antitrust regulation is too stringent, we risk crippling innovation that pushes society forward.
