Session Regulators at Crossroads: Ex Ante Rules and Competition Law for the Digital Economy
Description: Faced with the challenges of the digital economy, regulators around the world are
struggling to choose the right mode of action. While equipping existing competition law with new
tools calibrated for digital markets may be one option, an increasing number of jurisdictions prefer
to draft rules that target certain digital platforms and a specific list of harmful practices. For
competition authorities, this may mean that competition law is losing its regulatory relevance in
the new economy. This session will discuss whether competition law indeed is lagging behind in
harnessing Big Tech and what are the ways to reinvigorate its power including by combining
conventional competition law enforcement with the preventive nature of ex ante rules.

16.00 – 17.00
Session Ecological Approach to Competition Law in the New Economy
Description: This session will focus on the innovative approach to the ecosystem economy that
views digital ecosystems as similar in many ways to their natural counterparts. An ecological
approach to regulation of digital ecosystems and platforms – ecoantitrust – presumes that ecosystem businesses are organized as complex systems and thus their features and behavior
can be compared to some pivotal examples of complex systems – natural ecosystems. This
approach uses analogies and methods from ecology and biology to formulate a new toolbox for
regulators tasked with controlling the growing power of digital ecosystem businesses. This
session will include a presentation of the Ecoantitrust project followed by a discussion.
Chair: Andrey Tsyganov, Deputy Head, Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) Russia
