Framing algorithms: competition law and (other) regulatory tools


Picht, Peter Georg; Loderer, Gaspare Tazio (2019). Framing algorithms: competition law and (other) regulatory tools. World Competition, 42(3):391-417.

Abstract

As other fields of law, competition law is put to the test by new technologies in general and algorithmic market activity in particular. This article takes a holistic approach by looking at areas of law, namely financial regulation and data protection, which have already put in place rules and procedures to deal with issues arising from algorithms. Before making the bridge and assessing whether the application of regulatory tools from these areas might be fruitful for competition law as well, the article discusses some recent competition cases involving algorithmic market activity. It concludes with policy recommendations.
