The Legal Periphery of Dominant Firm Conduct

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Herb Hovenkamp has posted a new working paper on The Legal Periphery of Dominant Firm Conduct.

ABSTRACT: This essay explores two different but related problems and how U.S. antitrust law and EU competition law approach them. The first is the offense of attempt to monopolize, which concerns the acts that a firm that is not yet dominant might undertake in order to become dominant. The second is the offense of monopoly or dominant firm leveraging, which occurs when a firm uses its dominant position in one market to cause some kind of harm in a different market where it also does business.
