Court dismisses FTC antitrust complaint against Facebook, saying FTC hasn’t made case the social media platform is a monopoly

“Today’s decision by the D.C. District Court reinforces what every American already knows, that there is robust choice and competition online and on social media,” said Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel at NetChoice, which counts Facebook as a member. “Activists might say we need new antitrust laws, but the Federal Trade Commission’s departure from tradition into subjective antitrust enforcement has illustrated the very need for our laws to continue to be applied objectively and fairly.”
