Professor Lianos delivered a public lecture on the "Limits of the Private Governance of (Digital) Ecosystems" in which he explored the limitations of the current legal framework in competition law to address the competition issues raised by business ecosystems and advanced a legal theory of ecosystems that will aim to embed their private governance to the public values of the social contract of the specific jurisdiction.
