Tech Regulation

By 26 October 2010 No Comment

The WSJ this morning reported that “several popular online travel companies are joining forces to oppose Google Inc.’s proposed $700 million purchase of ITA Software Inc., the leading provider of flight data, saying the deal would give it too much sway over the travel sector.”

At the AEI blog, Nick Schulz coupled a link to this article with a link to my piece two years ago on Avoiding a Tech Train Wreck, noting that “this one could get ugly.” He is right, and it does indeed raise important questions about the rules that apply to platform companies in their dealings with the producers of intermediate products.

Thanks, Nick.
