The Antitrust Analysis of Rules and Standards for Software Platforms

David Evans ()

CPI Journal, 2014, vol. 10

Abstract: Software platforms usually impose rules and standards and often exclude participants that harm others in the community, and reward participants that benefit others in the community. Competition policy should presume that these governance systems, and the restrictions they place on platform participants—including their possible expulsion from the platform—are efficient and pro-competitive. Software platforms could, however, employ governance systems to foreclose competition.
