Australia’s Inquiry into the impact of digital platforms on the media and advertising services markets

Australia’s competition regulator, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (‘ACCC’), has launched a world-first inquiry into - according to its terms of reference - the impact of digital search engines, social media platforms and other aggregation platforms on the state of competition in Australia’s media and advertising markets. The most recent development in the Inquiry was the release of the ACCC’s Issues Paper on 26 February 2018, which outlined areas the ACCC will focus on, including the potential negative impact of digital platforms on diversity, journalism quality and accessibility in the media, and the competition issues created by the use of Big Data. Angela Flannery, Partner at Holding Redlich, and Dave Poddar, Partner at Clifford Chance, discuss the Issues Paper and the wider Inquiry.
