Is blocking the Microsoft-Activision deal just the start for UK digital competition regulation?


This week on the podcast, Conan D'Arcy is joined by Associate Bart Myners to unpack the CMA's decision to block Microsoft's blockbuster purchase of Activision-Blizzard. They also touch on the UK's new Digital Markets, Competition and Consumer Bill, which empowers the CMA to introduce a range of pre-emptive measures on large tech platforms with a view to protecting competition. Is the UK taking on the mantle from Brussels of being the scourge of “Big Tech”?
