Media entrepreneur Kosha Gada says a recent antitrust lawsuit filed against Facebook by 48 US states “might have legs” since breaking up big tech has “bipartisan support” across the US and globally.
The antitrust lawsuit was followed by the filing of a separate lawsuit against the company by the Federal Trade Commission which alleged Facebook was “illegally maintaining its personal social networking monopoly through a years-long course of anticompetitive conduct”.
Ms Gada said Facebook was anticipating this attack and has been preparing their defence.
She added, the theme of “scrutinising and breaking up big tech” was one of the few themes with bipartisan support in the US and globally.
“Regardless of the future of who’s in power, politically, this thing might have legs,” he said.
