Abstract

The interpretation of global competition law continues to shift, to take account of new sales media, new technologies and new actions that have the effect of restricting or distorting competition. This means that the courts and competition authorities must constantly evolve and adapt practice to ensure the goals of competition law are upheld.

There have been three recent cases in European and UK competition law that have shed light on two specific areas of competition law: rebates and online sales restrictions which I will summarize and provide comment on.
