Changes to competition law in the context of Industrie 4.0
PLATFORM PUBLICATION - Market definition, market power from data sovereignty, legal accountability according to competition law, admissible cooperation between companies in the field of Industrie 4.0 and platform regulations are topics presented in this short publication on competition law considerations in Industrie 4.0.
New developments are raising questions for the German as well as the European Competition Law. Who can cooperate with whom and under what conditions? Which significance does data access have for market power and when is misconduct at hand? Who is responsible for the competition law relevant conduct of self-learning systems?
The experts of the platform's working group on "legal framework" have addressed these and other issues in a publication, of which this summary will highlight the individual results.
