Russia and Global Challenges for Competition Law and Policy in the New Economy: Yandex v. Google, Kaspersky v. Microsoft, the Bayer-Monsanto Merger and Beyond

P. 473-490.

Ivanov A.

The chapter focuses on key questions that are currently emerging in the digitalized economy. Competition is a fundamental element of the capitalist economic system, distinguishing it from the administrative centrally planned economy. However, competition could take different forms and modalities, changing in line with the transformations of the capitalist system itself. Transition to digital capitalism is clearly one of those paradigmatic shifts in economic life, which poses a certain adaptation challenge for the legal systems all around the world.

Competition Law for a Complex Economy
​As the global economy is incurring a process of transformation by the ongoing “fourth industrial revolution”, competition law is traversing a “liminal” moment, a period of transition during which the normal limits to thought, self-understanding and behaviour are relaxed, opening the way to novelty and imagination, construction and destruction. This paper studies the convergence and the remaining divergences of European competition and sector regulation in the electronic communications sector.

Competition and Data Pools
In the Internet of Things (IoT), the amount and smart use of data will determine whether or not a firm can compete successfully. Firms, at least SMEs, will likely store their collected data in the cloud, purchasing cloud services and storage from the large e-platform providers doubling as cloud providers. This article discusses whether competition law can address the conduct of the cloud providers, so that firms may access and make use of all the possibilities that the IoT harbours.
