WASHINGTON — Following last evening's announcement from the U.S. Department of Justice that its Antitrust Division is conducting a review on the market practices of online platforms, ITI, the global voice of the tech industry, released the following statement from its president and CEO Jason Oxman:

“U.S. technology companies make the United States a global leader in innovation, power the economy, and deliver transformative benefits to people worldwide. As the Department of Justice explores the current state of competition in U.S. markets with respect to the tech industry, it should do so with precision and be consistent with existing law, and avoid harming America’s economy and innovative edge.”

Earlier this month, Oxman wrote a blog post on tech and antitrust, Examining Tech Should Move America Ahead, Not Backward.
