International Competition Law (II)
E-Commerce and Competition Law
The onset of the COVID-19 crisis has led to a significant limitation of physical interactions, and the corresponding rise of e-commerce platforms for the provision of various goods and services. The structure and characteristics of such platforms give rise to novel and difficult competition law issues that competition authorities and e-commerce platforms in various jurisdictions have to properly approach and tackle.
In this webinar, Connie Lee and Joshua Yeung of Des Voeux Chambers will share their insights on how to approach this novel hot topic. Key issues that will be discussed include:
(1) Market definition for e-commerce companies;
(2) The effect of pricing structures and algorithms on competition law; and
(3) Downstream arrangements by e-commerce platforms to suppliers and retailers.
