This book is designed as a working tool for the study and practice of European competition law. It is an enlarged and updated fifth edition of the highly practical guide to the leading cases of European competition law. This fifth edition focuses on Article 101 TFEU, Article 102 TFEU and the European Merger Regulation. In addition it explores the public and private enforcement of competition law, the intersection between intellectual property rights and competition law, the application of competition law to state action and state aid laws. Each chapter begins with an introduction which outlines the relevant laws, regulations and guidelines for each of the topics, setting the analytical foundations for the case entries. Within this framework, cases are reviewed in summary form, accompanied by analysis and commentary. Praise for the book 'This book should be in the library of every competition law practitioner and academic. The summary of cases is first class. But what makes it really stand out is the quality of the commentary and the selection of the material which includes not only the most important European judgements and decisions but also some of the leading cases from the US and European Member States.' Ali Nikpay, Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP 'The study of EU Competition law requires the analysis and understanding of a number of increasingly complex European Commission and European Court decisions. Through the provision of case summaries, excerpts from the important passages and concise commentary linking these decisions to other key case law and Commission documents, this unique and impressive book, now in its fifth edition, provides the student and practitioner of EU competition law with an extremely clear and useful introduction to these leading decisions.' Dr Kathryn McMahon, Associate Professor, School of Law, University of Warwick 'This book is especially valuable for competition law specialists in Europe and abroad who are interested in the jurisprudence and policy of the European Union and its member states. Familiarity with the European regime is essential for proficiency in competition law today, and this volume provides an excellent foundation.' William E Kovacic, Global Competition Professor of Law and Policy, George Washington University Law School, Former Chairman, US Federal Trade Commission 'The Guide is an invaluable tool for both students and practitioners. It provides a compact overview on the fundamental cases and highlights the essential problems in a clear and sharp analysis.' Dr Christoph Voelk, Antitrust Practice Group, McDermott, Will & Emery LLP, Brussels

Competition between firms is usually the most effective way of delivering economic efficiency and what consumers want. However, there is a balance to be struck. Firms must not be over-regulated and so hampered in their development of innovative products and new strategies to compete for customers. Nor must they be completely free to satisfy a natural preference for monopoly, which would give them higher profits and a quieter life. The economic role of competition policy (control of anticompetitive agreements, mergers and abusive practices) is to maintain this balance, and an effective policy requires a nuanced understanding of the economics of industrial organization. Cases in European Competition Policy demonstrates how economics is used (and sometimes abused) in competition cases in practical competition policy across Europe. Each chapter summarizes a real case investigated by the European Commission or a national authority, and provides a critique of key aspects of the economic analysis.

This new Fifth Edition of a major work by the well-known competition law team at Van Bael and& Bellis brings the book completely up to date to take account of the great number of significant new cases that have been decided since the Fourth Edition in 2004 as well as many other developments. The authors have also taken the opportunity to write much extended chapters on procedure as well as on state involvement in competition. As one would expect, the new edition continues to meet the challenge for businesses and their counsel, providing a thoroughly practical guide to the application of EC competition rules across all market sectors. The critical commentary cuts through the theoretical underpinnings of EC competition law to expose its actual impact on business. Recent years have first and foremost been a time for gaining experience in the application of the procedural and substantive rules which underwent such fundamental changes in the early years of the decade. In this edition, the authors examine all the important cases from this key period of competition law enforcement, and such notable recent developments as the following: and• ever-increasing fines under the Commissionand’s revised fining guidelines; and• new risks for companies on appeal; and• the Commissionand’s revised leniency programme; and• the Commissionand’s new formal cartel settlement procedure; and• important Article 82 rulings concerning pricing, tying and interoperability, including the Microsoft judgment; and• the Commissionand’s guidance communication concerning its enforcement priorities concerning abusive exclusionary conduct; and• the new, broader and‘significantly impeding effective competitionand’ test under the Merger Regulation; and• developments in the energy and telecoms sectors; and• distribution issues in the motor vehicle sector; and and• procedural aspects of sector inquiries. As a comprehensive, up-to-date and above all practical analysis of the EC competition rules as developed by the Commission and EC Courts, this authoritative new edition of a classic work stands alone. Like its predecessors, it will be of immeasurable value to both businesspersons and their legal advisers.
