This chapter considers the application of the EU competition rules specifically within the digital economy. It considers: the competition dynamics that typically arise in digital markets; examples of competition enforcement in digital markets at EU level to date; and some of the enforcement challenges that arise, including the limited scope of application of the EU competition rules, the prevalence of novel or controversial theories of harm, and the speed of intervention and effectiveness of remedies that can be imposed. The chapter also explores efforts to augment the ordinary competition law framework in the digital context. In particular, it considers the provisions and implications of the Digital Markets Act, which imposes a series of prescriptive ex ante obligations on large digital gatekeepers.
