Howard Stern and Unilateral Effects: Lessons From the XM-Sirius Satellite Radio Merger
Wednesday, September 10, 2008
This program will examine the antitrust issues surrounding the XM-Sirius satellite radio merger and debate the implications of the Department of Justice's analysis as set forth in the agency's closing statement issued on March 24, 2008.
The panel will examine key factual and legal issues including:
The basis and legal ramifications of DOJ's finding that the parties were not significant competitors in certain segments of the satellite radio business Market definition issues affecting the DOJ's analysis of the retail channel
The role of efficiencies in DOJ's analysis
The impact of future technological developments in DOJ's analysis
The panel will use this discussion as a basis to predict the impact of this case on future unilateral effects challenges, and on merger enforcement trends in general.
Please join our panel of experts for a lively discussion of these issues. To register for this Teleseminar/Audio Webcast, Please go to: http://www.abanet.org/cle/programs/t08hsu1.html
