The Google Search Case: Quo Vadis?

The Google Search Case conference focuses on the Statement of Objections issued by the European Commission, investigating the possible favourable treatment, within Google’s web search results, of links to Google’s own specialised web search services.

The conference will provide a forum for a fruitful discussion not only on the existence and abusive nature of the alleged infringement, but also on the principle of fairness in competition law. In addition, the challenges posed by high tech markets, and the issues relating to the construction of effective remedies in this market will be explored.

The conference will be an occasion to exchange ideas, discuss legal issues and challenges of unilateral conducts in digital economies, trying to predict future outcomes and developments.

The conference is organised by IGLEF, the Institute for Global Law, Economics and Finance, of the Centre for Commercial Law Studies, Queen Mary University of London.
