Abuses of Dominant ICT Companies in the Area of Data Protection

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review

Abstract

The existence of dominant companies such as Microsoft, Google, Facebook, etc. result in a dangerous situation in terms of abuses of data protection and data security legislation. It is important to specify the term “dominant” or “dominance” as, in my opinion, the existing definition from a competition law perspective does not apply to the situation concerning privacy and data protection. So far law has not presented any other sufficient way to describe “dominance”.
