Description

EC and UK Competition Law: Commentary, Cases and Materials offers a clear, concise and comprehensive account of the competition rules of the EC and the UK. EC Competition rules are an important source of consultation, increasingly serving as a model followed by many countries when adopting or developing competition rules within their domestic legal systems. This book offers a single up-to-date source of all the important cases, legislation and guidelines, clearly annotated and presented. With a detailed commentary and case studies (with model answers) throughout, this book eliminates the need for students to consult multiple sources. Key developments in EC and UK competition law are covered: Regulation 139/2004 and Guidelines on Horizontal Mergers; Regulation 772/2004 and Guidelines on Technology Transfer Agreements; the Enterprise Act 2002; and recent amendments to the Competition Act 1998. Recent EC and UK judgments and decisions are covered: Commission v Bayer; Michelin v Commission; VW v Commission; and the Microsoft decision.show more
