Oxford publishes UT Law professor’s book on big data, competition

Oxford University Press has published a new book by Maurice Stucke, a University of Tennessee College of Law professor and a former trial attorney with the United States Department of Justice Antitrust Division.

The book, Big Data and Competition Policy, is co-authored by Allen P. Grunes, an antitrust lawyer who co-founded the Konkurrenz Group with Stucke.

Big Data and Competition Policy is the first work to offer a detailed description of the important new issue of Big Data and explains how it relates to competition laws and policy, both in the European Union and United States,” reads the book’s description. “The book helps bring the reader quickly up to speed on what is Big Data, its competitive implications, the competition authorities’ approach to data-driven mergers and business strategies, and their current approach’s strengths and weaknesses.”

The book will be released August 2 and may be preordered now at bookstores and online booksellers.

Big Data and Competition Policy

Stucke is one of the nation’s foremost experts on the intersection of law and technology. He has co-authored the book Online Trade, Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence: The End of Competition as We Know It with Oxford University’s Ariel Ezrachi, which will be published later this year by Harvard University Press. Additionally, Stucke and Ezrachi recently saw their article, “When Competition Fails to Optimize Quality: A Look at Search Engines,” published in the Yale Journal of Law & Technology.

This November, Stucke will address competition authorities from around the globe on the subject of Big Data and competition policy and law at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s annual conference in Paris.
