“whether a less intrusive measure could have been used”
“a market that is vulnerable-and, some would say, prone-to monopolistic abuse of market power.”-[Official Report, 20 November 2023; Vol. 741, c. 58.]
“competition must work hand in hand with consumer protections.”-[Official Report, 17 May 2023; Vol. 732, c. 880.]
“a small number of firms exert immense control across strategically critical services online because the unique characteristics of digital markets, such as network effects and data consolidation, make them prone to tip in favour of a few firms.”-[Official Report, 20 November 2023; Vol. 741, c. 51.]
“those benefits could not be realised without the conduct”.
“the conduct is indispensable and proportionate to the realisation of those benefits”.
“We think that the JR standard achieves that.”
“very protracted litigation”,
“a lot harder to reach constructive, collaborative outcomes”,
“all eyes are on that litigation process.”––[Official Report, Digital Markets, Competition and Consumers Public Bill Committee, 13 June 2023; c. 7, 8, Q4.]
“What about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?”
“Touts are part of organised criminal networks often involved in other crimes”.
“the trader or business’s name and trading address are clearly visible, in full, on the first page the ticket is viewable on.”
“must not be hidden behind an icon, a drop down menu or other device”,
“in a clear and comprehensible manner”
“before the buyer is bound by the contract for the sale of the ticket.”
“A secondary ticketing facility must make it clear to traders and businesses based overseas that sell tickets to UK consumers and target UK consumers through paid or sponsored advertisements”-
“or paid infomercials that they are subject to UK legislation.”
