The House Judiciary Committee's Antitrust Subcommittee released a 449-page report on the state of competition in the digital economy yesterday. The report suggests that Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook have engaged in anti-competitive or monopolistic behavior, and includes a series of recommendations including structural separations at each of the four companies and broader changes to antitrust regulation and enforcement.
More context: The report culminates a 16-month investigation into the market power and behavior of Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook, and a review of competition and antitrust regulation in the digital economy more broadly. Access the full report.
Extra: The Democrat-led committee’s recommendations reportedly faced pushback from several Republican members of the committee, who may issue two separate reports as early as this week.
