Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google’s Sundar Pichai, Apple’s Tim Cook, and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos — the leaders of tech’s most powerful companies — will face questions from US lawmakers in an antitrust hearing on Wednesday.
The House Judiciary Antitrust Subcommittee is investigating whether these firms have participated in anti-competitive business practices intended to stomp out smaller rivals and maintain their monopoly on the market.
The hearing, titled “Online Platforms and Market Power, Part 6: Examining the Dominance of Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google,” will be available to watch via a YouTube live stream.
The CEOs will reportedly give virtual testimonies in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, which is allowed, according to the hearing notice.
