Antonio Bavasso and Dominic Long (both Allen & Overy) discuss The Application of Competition Law in the Communications and Media Sector: A Survey of Recent Cases.
ABSTRACT: This article presents an overview of key competition law decisions in the electronic communications sector in 2009. During the period surveyed, the Commission has been involved in a number of cases relating to abusive pricing practices. It has also been heavily involved in issues relating to territorial restrictions in the distribution of digital media. There appears to be a cross fertilisation between regulation and general competition law in the electronic communications sector.
