CR letter to House Antitrust Subcommittee on addressing monopoly power

Description: Consumer Reports submitted a letter to the House Antitrust Subcommittee in connection with its hearing this week to continue exploring potential changes to the laws to address competition problems in the online platform marketplace and more broadly. Our letter called for corrective clarifications for mergers and for exclusionary conduct, and increased resources, as well as additional reforms directed at the particular problems with entrenched market power among online platforms, such as requiring interoperability among platforms, and requiring nondiscriminatory access.
