WASHINGTON – Today, leaders in tech policy led by the Internet Accountability Project sent a letter to the leadership of the U.S. House and Senate urging them to immediately pass three pieces of antitrust legislation to end the Big Tech monopolies. The three bills are:
Leaders from the following organizations signed onto the letter: Internet Accountability Project, The Claremont Institute Center for the American Way of Life, American Principles Project, Bull Moose Project, The American Mind, GETTR, and Edmund Burke Foundation.
“Anticompetitive behavior by these multibillion-dollar companies has wide-ranging and devastating consequences for small businesses and the American public at large,” the coalition letter states. “As the digital application marketplace has become dominated by just a few giant corporations, smaller companies who attempt to compete with their products are completely at their mercy. As we have seen, these behemoths can quickly join forces to effectively eliminate their competition by removing them from their platforms and cutting them off from their audiences.”
Last month, IAP launched a dedicated big tech accountability War Room to serve as a hub for critical information and spur grassroots action. The War Room arms Americans with key talking points they can use when they contact their members of Congress to urge them to pass antitrust legislation.
“The negative impact of Big Tech’s monopoly goes beyond elected officials, media outlets, and everyday Americans,” the letter continued. “Small businesses are also left at an overwhelming competitive disadvantage due to the algorithms and systems which influence the content presented to consumers who express interest in purchasing a product.”
The Internet Accountability Project is a conservative grassroots advocacy organization that opposes Big Tech and seeks to hold these companies accountable for their bad acts.
Unlike the Big Tech monopolies, the Internet Accountability Project pledges to never sell or share your personal information, which is your property.
