Platform rules

If you have a content platform, do you need to play nice(r) with the competition?

“Google Fined $1.7 Billion in EU for Restricting Rivals’ Ads,” The Wall Street Journal, March 21, 2019.  More money for prior practices affecting “the niche market of selling text ads on search results that appear on third-party websites.”  Paid $1.6 billion, while defending legality of practices.  Un huh.

When you’re a monopolist, you’re subject to different rules.  How do you have to handle “your” information when dealing with competitors or others?  Do you need more controls (Governance) in order to Comply?
