FTC v. FACEBOOK

March 5, 2021 by in "Two Minute Takeaway"

In December 2020, the Federal Trade Commission sued Facebook alleging unfair competition in violation of US antitrust law.   The complaint is an easy and interesting read and is available for review here.  The complaint focuses on three specific instances of unfair competition by Facebook: (1) acquiring Instagram; (2) acquiring WhatsApp and (3) configuring its application programing interfaces (“API’s”) in a manner to stifle competition.
