Join Professors Taylor Owen and Anya Schiffrin on April 15 for a discussion with Australia’s Rod Sims, the architect of the controversial Australian News Media Code which requires Google and Facebook to pay for news. Can the Code be replicated in other countries? Should it be? How should it be adapted to ensure the Code helps independent news and not just large media houses? Is there a danger of capture if Google and Facebook start handing out large amounts of money to journalism outlets around the world.

Register here.


Joining this discussion will be Andreas Mundt, President of the Bundeskartellamt; Rod Sims, Chairman of the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission; Andrea Coscelli, Chief Executive of the Competition and Markets Authority; Tembinkosi Bonakele, South Africa’s Competition Commissioner; and Isabelle de Silva, President of the French Competition Authority.
