House Democrats propose antitrust overhaul to rein in big tech

House Democrats will propose a massive overhaul of U.S. laws that could make it easier to break up giant tech companies, deter them from getting bigger and prevent businesses like Amazon and Apple from competing in their own marketplaces against rivals.

A copy of the report leaked out early on Twitter ahead of the committee’s planned release later Tuesday.

A major revamp: The proposals by Democrats on the House Judiciary antitrust subcommittee would be the most significant changes to federal antitrust rules in decades. They are the culmination of a 16-month bipartisan investigation that drilled into the practices of Facebook, Google, Apple and Amazon — released Tuesday in a 449-page tome just days or weeks before the Trump administration is expected to file an antitrust suit accusing Google of abusing its power in the search market.
