TechTarget: Regulators Need to Rethink Big Tech Regulation, Expert Says

Marshall Van Alstyne, Questrom Professor of Management in Information Systems, recently sat down for a Q&A with TechTarget to discuss the ongoing debate with regard regulating the big tech firms. Van Alstyne suggests that breaking up the tech companies and transferring data from one platform to another may not be the answer, but rather focusing on increasing competition through data access.

They could do damage by carving data up in the wrong ways and by putting too many impediments to using data in important ways that could benefit consumers.
