Adrian Emch, Hogan Lovells notes Antitrust in China - The Brighter Spots.
ABSTRACT: Following its entry into force in August 2008, China’s Anti-Monopoly Law has been applied by authorities and courts in individual enforcement decisions. This article aims to look at the achievements in the enforcement process so far. In particular, it analyzes how the merger control authority and some courts have - to some extent - carried out three analytical steps that can be used to separate anti- from pro-competitive conduct - i.e., market definition, market power, and pro-competitive effects.
