The E-Commerce Sector Inquiry: Can It Stop National Competition Authorities from Adopting an Overly Restrictive Approach?

Francesco Carloni, Scott S. Megregian and Melanie Bruneau, DLA ask The E-Commerce Sector Inquiry: Can It Stop National Competition Authorities from Adopting an Overly Restrictive Approach?

ABSTRACT: In the past years, some national competition authorities have adopted a restrictive approach as regards on-line practices in the distribution of goods and services in the European Union. As a result of that approach, companies are facing increasing uncertainty as to the legality and enforceability of their distribution agreements. A question is to what extend the situation will be changed with the e-commerce sector inquiry launched by the European Commission on 6 May 2015.
