Competition law’s aim is to counter the negative effects of this market power on consumers and competition. However, the question whether the concept of market power is still sufficient to capture the complex structure of power of large technology companies, and – if it is not – whether competition law (and the novel EU regulatory instruments, such as the DMA and DSA), is sufficient to capture and counter possible negative effects on the market and beyond (including in outer space).
