Description

The “Ending Platform Monopolies Act” would make it unlawful for a dominant platform to leverage its ownership or control over multiple business lines to self-preference and disadvantage competitors in ways that undermine free and fair competition. The bill would also give the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission the authority to seek civil penalties from “any person, or any individual who is an officer, director, partner, or employee of a person, who fails to comply with any provision of this Act.”
