We are happy to announce that Utrecht University alumnus Brend Plantinga is the winner of the 2022 JMN EULEN Master Thesis Award. The title of his thesis is: “Differences in substantive application of Article 102 TFEU and the DMA concretized: ‘Privacy policy tying’ under Article 102 TFEU or the opt-in rule for data combination and cross use in article 5 (2) of the DMA”. The award was given to Brend in a ceremony that took place on the 12th of December 2022 at the Faculty of Law, Economics and Governance of Utrecht University with several participants from the EULEN network. Please have a look at the blog post that Brend has written, in which he presents some findings from his master’s thesis.
