Matt from ESI Survival Guide and privacy expert Jonathan Armstrong explore the antitrust underpinnings of data protection.

Jonathan guides us through the concept of data privacy as a mechanism to promote fair trade and address antitrust issues by talking about his interview with Max Schrems, the Cambridge Analytica/Facebook scandal, Facebook dating, the creativity of regulators and the nightmare scenario that would occur if similar circumstances played out the eDiscovery context.

Matt concludes by considering how data protection and privacy regulations being roundabout antitrust measures have some similarity to how Al Capone was finally convicted.
