Season 1, Ep. 501

In this episode, Greg Day, Assistant Professor of Legal Studies at the Terry College of Business, and Abbey Stemler, Assistant Professor of Business Law and Ethics at Indiana University Kelley School of Business, discuss their article "Are Dark Patterns Anticompetitive?" This article explores how online platforms utilize tactics to manipulate the attention cycle of their users and invade decisional privacy. It also explains how antitrust law rather than privacy laws may be the proper conduit to protect consumers. Day is on Twitter at @greg_r_day and Stemler is at @MillenialProf1.
