Modern politics in the UK too then?
When a company becomes too big and "powerful" where it starts to show signs of a monopoly or when a group of similar companies form a cartel then the government is usually all too eager to apply tons of restrictions because a monopoly is obviously bad for the consumer (which, in all honesty, usually is the case).
But what happened with those regulations in this situation? I assume it's back to the common excuse of: "this is different?".
They way I see it they're allowing this single company to seriously expand their monopoly position and it will only be a matter of time because that gets abused.
