IAB US Responds to IAB France’s Antitrust Complaint Against Apple


NEW YORK, October 29, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Globally, the IAB comprises 47 national and regional IABs, which are independently governed associations that make decisions about membership, practices, policies and laws based on the terms of the local market.In the United States, antitrust law is a long, complex and often cumbersome process that too often fails to meet urgent competitive needs in a timely manner. These needs include the transparency, interoperability and fairness of the Internet, and the role browsers and operating systems play in ensuring them. The IAB believes that browsers and operating systems are essential utilities that should follow the same rules to ensure a level playing field that protects the ability of businesses to compete and grow, protect consumer privacy. and to ensure the security of everyone’s data.

We believe that the best and fastest way to secure these rights is through the collective development of technical standards and operating practices by major browser and operating system vendors. This should be done in collaboration with bodies representing users, with regulations ensuring compliance of all participants, where applicable. This is why the IAB and IAB Tech Lab launched the Rearc Project to begin the process of re-architecture the Internet supply chain to protect these rights, and why we partner with half a dozen commercial organizations and to dozens of large corporations as part of the Responsible Addressable Media Partnership. . We are committed to these cross-sectoral processes and believe that they will protect consumers, businesses and technology platforms as we all strive to create a safer, more competitive and open Internet for all.
