The Economist quoted Judge Robert Bork’s and Greg Sidak’s article, What Does the Chicago School Teach About Internet Search and the Antitrust Treatment of Google?, in a story about the growth of online businesses: “‘That consumers can switch to substitute search engines instantaneously and at zero cost constrains Google’s ability and incentive to act anti-competitively,’ wrote the late Robert Bork, a conservative judge, in a 2012 paper commissioned by Google that he wrote with Gregory Sidak, an antitrust expert. The paper had a wide influence; in 2013 the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), which had been looking into action against Google, decided not to proceed.” (November 29, 2014)

On February 7, 2006, Greg Sidak debated Larry Lessig on network neutrality before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. The debate continues in the summer of 2014, yet the Senate heard virtually every substantive argument for or against net neutrality in the Lessig-Sidak debate more than eight years ago. Sidak published two exhaustive articles in the Journal of Competition Law & Economics (one with David Teece) on net neutrality.
