  • Solving a Sustainability-Deficit in European Competition Law
    • Abstract: It is undeniable that there is a tension between European competition law and sustainability-focused agreements between undertakings. Whether it should, and how it could, be resolved is less clear. The necessity of providing ‘more room’ for sustainability-focused agreements is contested. Set within the wider discussion on the (proper) goals for European competition law, these public interests are often seen as alien to an economic approach of competition law. By taking developments in the Netherlands, where the tension seems to play out most visibly, as starting point, this article first sets out the argument that there is a sustainability-deficit within current competition law, and delineates where this deficit is ‘located’. The article then provides an overview of possible solutions. These are not (all) immediately applicable but would need tweaking existing competition law’s instruments. Thus both to the interpretation of the Article 101 (3) TFEU exception clause and to the doctrines relating to placing entities or activities outside the scope of Article 101 (1) TFEU are discussed, as is the underlying rationale relating to the dichotomy between market and government.

  • Market Definition for Multi-Sided Platforms: A Legal Reappraisal
    • Abstract: It is frequently assumed that the outcome of today’s most discussed competition law cases hinges on market definition. In the context of multi-sided platforms, delimiting the relevant product market is a particularly delicate and complex task. Thus, this article seeks to analyse, from both an economic and a legal perspective, how relevant product markets for multi-sided platforms are properly defined under European competition law. Multi-sided platforms act as intermediaries which enable distinct groups of customers (also called platform-sides) to interact with each other. Multi-sided platforms have the possibility to set different prices for each group of customers, therefore econometric tools such as the small-but-significant-non-transitory increase-in-price test (SSNIP-test) must be applied with caution. It is argued that multi-sidedness can be considered a question of degree, therefore, for the purpose of market definition, it is necessary to distinguish different types of multi-sided platforms. The stronger the indirect network effects involved, the more the market definition deviates from traditional approaches. Indeed, the established legal framework allows a sound categorization of various forms of multi-sided platforms. In the context of multi-sided platforms, markets are regularly closely interrelated, therefore, the competitive assessment would be incomplete without an intermarket-analysis.

  • Chinese SOEs under EU Competition Law
    • Abstract: The treatment of state-owned enterprises (SOEs) under EU competition law is a complex and controversial topic. In particular, in order to determine whether the jurisdictional thresholds are met and what the competitive impact of the transaction would be, the Commission is tasked with assessing whether SOEs enjoy independent decision-making power from the State and vis-à-vis other SOEs. SOEs that lack such independent decision-making power are considered to form part of one ‘single economic unit’. The Commission has generally avoided making definite conclusions regarding the independence of SOEs. However, recent decision practice shows that the Commission is increasingly confident in concluding that various Chinese SOEs may form part of the same economic unit. This policy is likely to bring an increasing number of transactions involving Chinese SOEs under the scope of the EU Merger Regulation (EUMR). At the same time, however, the Commission’s decision practice and soft law instruments illustrate that concentrations between SOEs which form part of the same ‘economic unit’ fall outside the scope of the Merger Regulation and that agreements between such SOEs are not subject to Article 101 TFEU.

  • Whither Antitrust Regulation of Loyalty Rebates in China: The Tetra Pak
           Decision and Lessons from the EU
    • Abstract: On 16 November 2016, China issued the trailblazing Tetra Pak decision, which introduced the concept of loyalty rebates into the Chinese Anti-Monopoly Law. This article is aimed at critically assessing the loyalty rebates analysis in this decision and discussing how the law could develop thereon. It argues that, while breaking the ground for an effects-based approach to loyalty rebates in China, this decision failed to establish a solid theory of harm. This destined that the decision-maker would not be able to engage in a contextualized effects-analysis it had envisaged. By comparing this problem to a similar one in EU competition law, this article suggests that the exclusive dealing analogy should be employed for loyalty rebates analysis.

  • Revisiting the Imprisonment Sentence under the Egyptian Competition Regime
    • Abstract: This article addresses the Egyptian competition regime’s adoption of type II errors (under enforcement) in hardcore cartel cases. This article provides an analysis of the Egyptian Cement Cartel Case, and draws general conclusions drawn from it. This article explores the extent to which the fine imposed in the aforementioned case (the maximum fine at the time) was sufficient enough to recoup the cartel’s overcharges and to create the necessary deterrence effect for future anticompetitive practices in general and from creating cartels in particular. This article further explores an alternative approach to addressing concerns about the adequacy of a fine sentence in light of the applicability of an imprisonment sanction impeded within the Egyptian Penal Code. Moreover, this article examines the limits of this alternative approach, and how it could be practically enforced by Egyptian courts. Interviews with senior judicial figures in the Egyptian legal system were conducted to explore the applicability and limitations of the imprisonment approach. The assessment is not limited to qualitative data, however, but also encompasses quantitative data to further support the findings. As a result, it was found that imprisonment sanctions would eventually result in better enforcement policies. That is to say that fines were found not to be the optimal sanctioning mechanism since they are either extremely low or impossibly high.
