An amazing course! Mr. Randy Picker is very familiar with all the subjects and makes it easier to learn. Besides, his funny, enjoyable way of teaching helps to retain contents. In terms of contents itself, the course is extremely relevant to understand our technological information society based on Internet and media platforms competing continuously for market shares. I do recommend it!

The course was really interesting! Enormous amount of new information that definitely meets the needs of the modern world. Also, this course is a good chance to improve English skills for those whose native language is not English. It was my first experience on Coursera, and now I am sure that will take other courses on this platform with great pleasure. Thanks, professor :)

Professor Picker masterfully wraps law and economics into a gripping story. I have enrolled in several courses before, but this is the first course I went through from A to Z. And thoroughly enjoyed.
The material is engaging, the audio and video is brilliant, and the delivery is flawless. I would recommend this to anyone with any interest in the Internet economy.

An exciting course full of new information. Really well structured. Quizes are based on repeating and recalling and sometimes make you look into specifically linked documents. This really helps remember all the new material way better. I am really glad I took this course, I might even come back to look through it again. It was an exciting journey.

Great course covering a wide range of media platforms. Each week was a journey in one particular media field, from the initial entry of technology to the modern day legal issues raised by these businesses. Randy Picker is very easy to follow and enjoyable to listen to, and clearly has a deep knowledge and passion for the topics he discusses.

This is an excellent and comprehensive course covering most issues relevant to so-called internet giants. The materials provided are thorough, and the quizzes are sufficiently challenging, One would finish this course with a more complete understanding of the law and economics of media platforms in a way that no other online course offers.

As a law student interested in both technology and competition law this course was heaven sent. I couldn't wait for the next week to start on the next course. The course has been extremely insightful, simplified complex terms especially in economics and competition law. May God bless the team involved in preparing this course. Thank you

Please proceed with the new courses in the fied of law on computer science and technologies! You input in the filed of preparing such courses is very much appreciated. Also it would be even more interesting if comperative analysis will be undeertaken (e.g. personal data or advertising regulation with use of Internet throught the world).

Prof Randy Picker is an engaging instructor. Material has sufficient rigor and is well presented. At first I was worried as I don't have a legal background, but I feel it is presented at an understandable. If you spend any time on the Internet, you will learn incredible history from a legal and economics standpoint. Take this class!

This course is wonderful: A tech-related course lectured by a Law Professor. Professor Picker is a premier expert. I have law background but I am studying IT major in the U.S so I am looking for a chance in some law-IT field. Luckily this course gave me great knowledge! Thank you Professor Picker and UChicago!

A great course that deals with issues of contemporary importance; a great blend of law and economics phenomena captured through issues of antitrust, copyrights and patents. Highly recommended for anyone remotely interested in emerging technologies and its impact on institutional engineering.

I enjoyed the course thoroughly. Prof. Picker's lectures were informative, analytical and practical. The additional readings he identified were great for more in-depth learning. Overall, the entire course proved useful for me, and I look forward to more (similar) programmes.

I enjoyed this course way more than I expected. Randy Picker is an excellent teacher and a perfect guide to the questions that involve Antitrust, IP and Policy Making in Tech. Im leaving this course with the feeling that I actually learned valuable lessons for my practice.

Great course. Amazing amount of detail with which each topic is dealt. Advanced learners have an option to gain additional knowledge on the topics covered by using the extra-depth readings section. I have taken almost 10 MOOCs till date and none was as engaging as this.

Greatest course I've seen until now. The professor is both engaging and funny, which makes watching the lessons enjoyable and enriching. Loved it so much I would really love if the UNiversity of Chicago would offer a specialization course in the subject via Coursera.

A very useful overview of the antitrust, copyright and economic issues raised by various internet and media platforms. The course is useful not only for law practitioners but for everyone who would like to have a grasp of the major players on the digital market.

Thourough course, full of interesting material to expand knowledge on the topic. Prof. Picker's videos are extremely well done, with examples, and a good line of explanations that usually start far from the issues to get back to the issue and connect de dots.

Randy Picker is such an animated speaker. The subject matters discussed were very interesting and informative. Randy was able to present complex topics in simple ways such that it can be understood by a person without any background in that topic.

Interesting course. Takes you through the history of the biggest technology firms, pausing at crucial lawsuits as well as business decisions. I particularly liked the way Prof. Picker draws hypothetical parallels to explain certain scenarios.

It was a privilege listening to this passionate and clear guide through the history of technology and antitrust with all the relevant docs . Each time I finished a segment I could not help listening to the next one. Like in a good tv series!

One of the most enriching and interesting courses for a 21 year-old Russian Law student contemplating a career in IT & IP Law. I'd like to express extreme gratitude to Prof. Picker and his team for making this course a success!

This is a great introduction to both the law associated with how a critical part of everyday life became what it is and the building blocks that I never knew were part of it! Thank you Randy for sharing your vast knowledge!
