While the digital economy has developed vigorously recently, many internet platforms have monopolized platforms using “choosing one from two”, variable interest entities(VIE) structure, and self-preferential treatment. Such vicious competition has disrupted the market order. The article first summarizes the tactics of internet platform companies to monopolize, and then analyzes how these platforms attempt to monopolize through the merger of HUYA and DOYU. The anti-monopoly cases investigated by the European Union against Google, Apple, and Amazon show how internet platforms take advantage of “self-preferential treatment”. This paper analyzes the anti-monopoly supervision methods and the interim framework of the Concentration Examination in China. Through discussing the case of Alibaba Group Holding LTD and the case of Sherpa’s, this paper analyzes how to judge the abuse of market dominance by competitors under the existing review framework.
