In the modern era, it is almost impossible to imagine a world without the use of technology. Especially, with the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus resulting in a state of ‘pandemic’, there has been a significant increase in the use of technology at higher levels in order to substitute manual or in person work with technology. While the ‘Big Tech’ firms are focusing on technological advancements, there has been a growing concern at the legislative and the policy making front. It is inevitable but to regulate the activities of these big firms so as to keep their competitive activities in check within the regulatory framework of the Competition/ Anti-trust laws. On the other hand, the gradual growth of scientific and technological advancement subsequently involves the obvious application of Intellectual Property law in order to protect inventions and creations that have led to the said technological advancements. This article is an attempt to identify the objectives of competition law and intellectual property law individually and to further understand their interfaces with each other and technology as a comparative study.
