David S. Evans, A. Jorge Padilla, 'Tying Under Article 82 EC and the Microsoft Decision: A Comment on Dolmans and Graf' (2004) 27 World Competition, Issue 4, pp. 503–512


The recent article by Maurits Dolmans and Thomas Graf summarises their views on the analytical framework adopted under EC tying law and applies this framework to the European Commission’s March 2004 decision in Microsoft. We appreciate the opportunity this article provides for engaging in a healthy debate about sound approaches towards tying practices and for examining the permissible limits of product design by dominant firms. Both have significant ramifications for the development of the Common Market.
