CGL’s Amanda Lewis serves as co-founder and Director of U.S. Competition Policy for a new coalition called the Responsible Online Commerce Coalition (ROCC).
ROCC is a trade association for businesses that rely on Amazon and other large online commerce platforms to reach their customers. Founded by leading U.S. and European antitrust experts, ROCC is working to ensure fair play for all businesses that operate in online commerce—from the very smallest third-party sellers to the world’s largest household brands.
Ms. Lewis stated, “Amazon is a vital gateway for both large and small businesses to reach their customers. It is critical that Amazon plays by fair competition rules, rather than rig the game in its favor. Consumers and the economy both win if Amazon is forced to take its heavy thumb off the scale so that businesses can freely compete for customers on the true merits of their products. All we are asking for is a level playing field that is free from rules that distort competition. We are working with policymakers and regulators in the United States and around the world to return the power of choice to consumers through open and fair markets in the digital economy.”
