On Wednesday, the U.S. House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee will hold an antitrust hearing with the CEOs of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. The hearing was originally scheduled for 7/27, but was rescheduled for the observance of Rep. John Lewis’ funeral (The Verge). The four tech giants are appearing in response to the Subcommittee’s ongoing antitrust investigation of online platforms and their market power. The hearing is intended to provide insight into the “adequacy of existing antitrust laws and enforcement” (judiciary.house.gov).
