The Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act: Did Arbaugh Erase Decades of Consensus Building?

Tad Lipsky and Kory Wilmot (Latham) ask The Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act: Did Arbaugh Erase Decades of Consensus Building?

ABSTRACT: Congress passed the Foreign Trade Antitrust Improvements Act of 1982 (FTAIA) to help resolve a simple and increasingly important issue: when does U.S. antitrust law apply to foreign conduct? Passage of the FTAIA capped an extended period of debate within the antitrust community (including judicial decisions, antitrust enforcement agency actions, guidelines and policies, and voluminous writings of practitioners and scholars from the U.S. and other jurisdictions) regarding the best answer to that question.
