Regulating the Tech Giants
A Media Society/Simons Muirhead & Burton LLP event
They are now the masters of the internet and advertising universe. The FAANGs - Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix and Google. They dominate the modern media and have piled up mountains of cash. But now they are facing increasing scrutiny and criticism. 

With a government White Paper on the subject due shortly, the Media Society tonight asks whether it is time to regulate the Tech Cos – whether it is time to PULL IN THE FAANGs?

Join this controversial and timely debate.
