Biden Administration Ramps Up Big Tech Regulation as Election Nears

As the November election approaches and with former President Donald Trump poised to become the Republican nominee, President Joe Biden’s administration is ramping up its efforts to regulate Big Tech. The administration is utilizing regulatory federal agencies to target leading technology companies, such as AI chipmaker Nvidia and software giant Microsoft.

President Biden has appointed individuals who are aligned with his views to lead the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Justice Antitrust Division. These appointments signal the administration’s intent to increase scrutiny on the tech industry and challenge established business practices. 


The scrutiny of AI development and opposition to well-established business practices in the tech space have raised concerns among critics. Some argue that the administration’s antitrust attacks on AI are an overreach of government power and could hinder technological advancement, including AI’s potential to detect and treat diseases like cancer.

The Department of Justice is pursuing cases against major tech companies like Amazon, Meta, and Apple. Additionally, the telecommunications industry is facing regulatory challenges, with the reinstatement of net neutrality rules and the filing of a suit against Live Nation Entertainment’s Ticketmaster.

Critics of the administration’s regulatory actions question the motives behind these crackdowns on technology industries and antitrust enforcement, suggesting they may be politically motivated attempts to appeal to certain voter demographics. A poll found that a majority of voters in battleground states prioritize expanding technology jobs and services over regulating tech companies.

Overall, the Biden administration’s regulatory actions and antitrust enforcement are drawing criticism for potentially stifling innovation and hindering economic growth. The impact of these regulatory efforts on the upcoming election remains uncertain, but they have sparked concerns about government overreach and the potential consequences for the technology industry.
