USCIB Discusses Online Platforms With Department of Justice

USCIB hosted a meeting with officials from the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) on the “Big Tech” review of online platforms on December 18. The meeting brought together USCIB members, staff as well as specialists who spoke on these issues, including Associate Deputy Attorney General and Senior Advisor for Technology Industries Ryan Shores and Counsel to the Attorney General Lauren Willard.

In July of 2019, the DOJ announced the review of market-leading online platforms. This review is considering competition and other issues related to online platforms, including a recently-announced review of Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act. Shores was appointed to his position in October of this year to lead this review effort.

“Wednesday’s meeting provided a great opportunity for members to exchange views with the DOJ officials on these important issues,” said Eva Hampl, senior director for investment, trade and financial services, who leads USCIB’s work on competition policy.
