Hubert Burda Media and FUNKE-Verlag breakthrough
Our antitrust team approves Burda-Funke marketing collaboration. The publishers call the agreement forward-looking since it allows them to defend their market position against dominating U.S. internet titans while maintaining editorial freedom. Burda and FUNKE will make BCN an integrated marketer. Five months of merger control proceedings by the German Federal Cartel Office assessed the cooperation’s competitive consequences.
