Great course covering a wide range of media platforms. Each week was a journey in one particular media field, from the initial entry of technology to the modern day legal issues raised by these businesses. Randy Picker is very easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to, and clearly has a deep knowledge and passion for the topics he discusses.

I studied film production before digital took over, taught video production, went back to finish my degree after 30 years in the industry and decided on a B.A. in law with a film and tv minor. My University offered similar classes that focused on the history of Hollywood and Silicon Valley, but "Internet Giants" was the class that was missing.
This class will prepare you for the evolution of the media industry that will inevitably happen, take it from a guy who used to make movies before computers!

It was a privilege listening to this passionate and clear guide through the history of technology and antitrust with all the relevant docs . Each time I finished a segment I could not help listening to the next one. Like in a good tv series!

Extremly passioned teacher, very informative course. If the english is not your native language, Randy's voice and language is very kind and understandable. Very nice. 10\10.

I think the course is great. The material is more than it seems because it has many layers. As an economist and practitioner of competition policy I found most of the examples very useful to understand the reasoning of judges (if that would be possible). The discussion on copyrights and competition are of most use to understand the limits of both, since very often arguments on copyright come to place in competition cases in this kind of industries. However, maybe the best of the course is how Professor Picker is able to mix and mach history with current events. The notion that technological development is not something new and that many of the discussions we have today had been taken before is very important in order not to lose ground in the analysis. I would like to thank Professor Picker for his effort, I also would like to enroll in future courses and actualizations of the present course he organizes.

It is a fantastic course that takes the audience through the world of tech's (media platforms) economics and law concepts and regulations. Studying the emergence of Microsoft, Google, Apple and many others, each module is built starting from the "historical artifacts" that either first acknowledged or regulated each of them and then slowly bringing them to today's modern standpoint.
From my point of view, Randy Picker and his team did a great job with this course in covering all aspects of each module. Moreover, he exceeds expectations by explaining correlated subjects and events, that ultimately ensures a better understanding of the whole phenomenon for each module.

This is the best course I have ever attended! Many-many thanks to mr. Picker for his great antitrust perspective and an ability to easily explain very complicated issues! Looking forward to your new courses involving antitrust and again thanks and best wishes!

Engaging, inspirational, explanatory and accessible to everybody. Great e-learning course if you want to understand how Internet Giants operate on markets and within the borders of law.
A lot of copyright law is presented, but in an interesting and practical way. Economic focus is on business models and the idea of two-sided markets.
This course enabled me to understand the ideas behind big internet corporations like Google, Microsoft, Apple, Amazon etc. and raise overall awareness about Internet regulations.
I highly recommend this course! :)

An amazing course! Mr. Randy Picker is very familiar with all the subjects and makes it easier to learn. Besides, his funny, enjoyable way of teaching helps to retain contents. In terms of contents itself, the course is extremely relevant to understand our technological information society based on Internet and media platforms competing continuously for market shares. I do recommend it!

This is an excellent and comprehensive course covering most issues relevant to so-called internet giants. The materials provided are thorough, and the quizzes are sufficiently challenging, One would finish this course with a more complete understanding of the law and economics of media platforms in a way that no other online course offers.
