How to Restore Competition in Digital Advertising Markets and Protect Users

Article | March 2, 2020

After a careful analysis, the British Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) concluded that Google and Facebook dominate many online markets, including search, social media, search advertisement, display advertising, and open display advertising.
