TECH& Competition: Interview with Dr. Benjamin Chavis

Announcing the newest installment in our Tech& series. 

Tech& Competition dives into the American Innovation and Choice Online Act.

Currently under consideration in the US Senate, The American Innovation and Choice Online Act is aimed at curbing what some see as anticompetitive behavior on the part of large technology platforms. As with many large comprehensive pieces of legislation, the challenge is in the details. Many companies, think tanks, trade associations and thought leaders are concerned about the unintended consequences of the bill including the potential impact on data privacy, national security, consumer choice, antitrust policy and innovation. Another serious concern is the bill’s impact on small businesses which rely on large tech platforms to expand their customer base and grow their businesses. This is of particular concern for small minority owned businesses who rely on digital tools to help overcome historical inequities. SIIA explores the impact of this legislation in a new video series.

Enjoy SIIA President Jeff Joseph’s conversation with National Newspaper Publishers Association President Dr. Benjamin Chavis on the impact this legislation could have on minority owned businesses. Watch now.
