The CFI Decision in Microsoft: Why the European Commission's Guidelines on Abuse of Dominance Are Necessary and Possible

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Frederic Jenny of ESSEC Business School and the Supreme Court of France (Cour de Cassation) has written on The CFI Decision in Microsoft: Why the European Commission's Guidelines on Abuse of Dominance Are Necessary and Possible.

ABSTRACT: The Court of First Instance’s Microsoft decision provided the Court with an opportunity to express its views on several aspects of the current debate on the interpretation of Article 82 of the EC Treaty.

This short note focuses on the “refusal to deal” part of the decision to derive some conclusions on the advisability and the possibility for the European Commission to adopt guidelines on the enforcement of Article 82.
