In January, the Senate Judiciary Committee marked up and approved the American Innovation and Choice Online Act (AICOA) for a main-floor vote. The AICOA would prohibit large tech firms from engaging in well-established, common business practices such as self-preferencing their own products and protecting knowledge assets. This could significantly affect the US tech sector and constrict US ingenuity and global competitiveness.
The AICOA becoming law could also have notable consequences for US antitrust policy. Historically, antitrust enforcement has relied on empirical evidence of market power and business practices harming consumers. The AICOA, however, would outlaw otherwise allowable business practices based simply on firms’ past success.
Join AEI’s Mark Jamison and an expert panel for a discussion of the AICOA’s specific provisions and potential impacts.

Note from Oakland News Now Blog, Zennie62 YouTube, and Zennie62Media: this Oakland News Online Blog video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018, originally on Zennie62Media , Inc.’s Oakland News Now. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. This is what we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a “liked” YouTube video by a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then that YouTube video is uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Online Blog site and Zennie62Media -created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary, thus less chance for Oakland News Online Blog, Zennie62 YouTube vloggers to be robbed. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners. This process is entirely within YouTube terms of service, where embedding of videos for use on websites and platforms is allowed and encouraged.
