Tech regulation is coming. How does Big Tech respond?
Calls for tech regulation — from lawmakers, regulators, small businesses, even consumers — have become deafening. It now seems almost certain that antitrust action, privacy laws and more will influence the industry in some form in a bid to undermine the most powerful companies in the world's most powerful industry.
But those companies want a hand in shaping what that regulation looks like. And while lawmakers argue about what policy should actually look like, tech companies are able to change their behaviors and business models to prepare for what's coming down the pike.
In this event, we’ll look at what lawmakers really hope to achieve, how tech companies are already responding to the threat and what a realistic version of tech regulation might actually look like a few years from now.
