COVID19 has, if anything, cemented the hold of the Big Tech firms, which have been the archetypical ecosystem builders. If Big Tech offers such seamless experiences, what is there to dislike? Why should we look at the increasing role of a few powerful orchestrators, who both underpin our lives on a daily basis, and determine the fate of a vast number of complementors? Cristina Caffarra, one of the leading antitrust practitioners, will consider the dark sides of these shiny new ecosystems, and will discuss with us what we can do, or at least attempt to do, to curb competitive excesses to protect customers, smaller business partners, and innovation, without throwing out the baby along with the tub water.
