Europe’s recently enacted Digital Markets Act reflects a new approach that bases liability on the size of firms rather than market dominance and employs regulatory-style remedies. Both houses of the U.S. Congress are considering following suit. Do we really need new rules? Is competition truly in peril? How will these new rules affect markets and consumers?
