Competition Law explains the purpose of competition policy, introduces the reader to key concepts and techniques in competition law, and provides insights into the numerous different issues that arise when analysing market behaviour. Describing the law in its economics and market context, the chapters particularly consider the competition law implications of business phenomena, including distribution agreements, licences of intellectual property rights, cartels, joint ventures, and mergers. The book assimilates a wide variety of resources, including judgments, decisions, guidelines, and periodical literature. The text has been updated to include the changes to UK law introduced by the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, including the creation of the Competition and Markets Authority. It also considers the new Directive on Antitrust Damages Actions and other measures designed to facilitate private enforcement of competition law. The volume covers the new block exemption for technology transfer agreements and accompanying guidelines and incorporates extensive new case-law and decisional practice at EU and UK level.
