Antitrust: Merger Hot TopicsRecent tech, media, and other high profile deals have raised questions about whether the merger laws are adequate to deal with (1) combinations of companies that compete in "innovation" markets, (2) so-called "killer" deals in which a dominant company acquires a nascent competitor that is small today but might otherwise grow into a formidable competitor, (3) vertical transactions combining content and distribution companies, and (4) acquisition by institutional investors of minority interests in multiple competitors within an industry (so-called "common ownership"). This seminar will explore these issues and ask: Do we need to amend Section 7 to maintain a competitive economy?
