'Twitter, Facebook, Google, Amazon and others have become a fixture in our daily lives and therefore have a strong influence on the way we communicate and create value. Unlike the classic monopolies, such as those in the telecommunications and energy sectors, these giants of the internet are largely unregulated. What is needed is an interdisciplinary forum for discussing and scrutinising the future regulatory framework for the internet economy from many different angles. Only this will enable us to develop balanced and comprehensive recommendations for political decision-makers that do justice to the importance of the (data-driven) internet economy.’
