Digital Platform Competition
Healthy companies that invest and innovate are integral to a successful developer ecosystem. Policy makers must recognize that traditional market risks do not automatically apply in the hyper-competitive digital space. Concepts of scarcity and finite distribution networks are far less relevant, and absent actual market failures it is inappropriate to extrapolate based on hard-goods market history. Consumer benefits are the most appropriate measure of a functioning market; one complete with developers, content creators, consumers, and the platforms and networks that interconnect them.
