Unilateral changes in the terms and conditions of business transactions or restrictions on trade with competitors by major tech companies could constitute a violation of the Antimonopoly Law, the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC) said Wednesday in its final report on the state of trade regarding online advertising.

The government plans to use the report as the basis for drawing up a policy by as early as March to regulate giant tech firms concerning digital advertising. Discussions are forthcoming to add this sector to areas covered under the law on the improvement of transparency and fairness in transactions on specified digital platforms, which was enacted in February to regulate major tech companies.
