Mr. Joseph J. Simons Chairman U.S. Federal Trade Commission 600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW Washington D.C. 20580 Dear Chairman Simons: On behalf of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF), I would like to submit the attached ITIF report Why Internet Platforms Dont Need Special Regulation, as a public comment to the FTCs Competition and Consumer Protection in the 21st Century Hearings, Project Number P181201. I think it is most relevant to your third hearing on Multi-Sided Platforms, question 1. As you may know, the University of Pennsylvania recently recognized ITIF as the worlds leading think tank on science and technology policy. Sincerely, Joe Kennedy
