Competition Policy International publishes article on ‘Revising the competition law rulebook for digital markets in Europe’ authored by Kris Van Hove, Argyrios Papaefthymiou and Margot Vogels
Kris Van Hove (Partner at Van Bael & Bellis), Argyrios Papaefthymiou (Associate at Zepos & Yannopoulos) and Margot Vogels (Associate at Van Bael & Bellis) have authored a new article on “Revising the competition law rulebook for digital markets in Europe: an update” published in the latest edition of Competition Policy International (CPI). Its purpose is to timely inform readers of the seismic shift that is currently underway in competition law enforcement in the digital sector.
The new article is a sequel to a previous article written by Kris Van Hove and Argyrios Papaefthymiou in October 2020 on the same subject matter and also published in CPI (available here). At that time, there were multiple studies and policy papers that identified the perceived competition law problems in digital markets in Europe and discussed various approaches to address these problems. The article then discussed these problems and approaches and submitted them to a critical assessment. In the meantime, these studies and policy papers have been translated into legislative and regulatory action as well as new enforcement action. The new article addresses these initiatives and enforcement action, which - as previously - have been submitted to a critical assessment.
