Debates about Internet policy frequently proceed from the premise that the Internet owes its success to presence of key platform technologies. Unfortunately, the concept of platforms remains badly undertheorized and understudied empirically. The result is that policymakers and enforcement authorities must often make key decisions without a clear idea of what aspects of platform design are essential and what practices are potentially problematic. The panel would include a discussion of the theoretical and empirical literature surrounding platforms. Key topics would the EU antitrust case against Google, the role of standard setting organizations, and the decisions not to include mobility and identity verification into IPv6.
