The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is close to launching five cases against Google and Facebook in the aftermath of its digital platforms inquiry. The cases are understood to involve alleged breaches of consumer, competition and privacy laws, with ACCC chairman Rod Sims saying on 13 August that Facebook and Google must comply with Australia’s laws if they wish to do business here. He said a decision on whether to proceed with the five cases would be made before the end of 2019.
