EU Competition Policy

By / 6.28.2017

PPI believes that the tech/telecom space is intensely competitive, not just in the United States but around the world.  We also believe that companies which are innovative and invest in new technologies and capabilities are providing great benefits to consumers and workers, including a fast-growing number of good jobs.

From that perspective, we are strongly against the EU’s punitive $2.7 billion antitrust fine against Google.  We believe the EU’s action will only feed into a global regulatory attack against innovation, and as such, will hurt consumers and workers.
