Purchase review

This new edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review tracks the evolution of abuse of dominance rules around the world. The sheer range of global enforcement – from established agencies, such as the EU and the US FTC, to intensifying enforcement in India, China and emerging economies – makes identifying common trends difficult. But books such as The Dominance and Monopolies Review make the task of comparatively analysing developments manageable.

This editorial picks out four such developments. First, the approach competition authorities over the world have taken to assessing product design improvements. Second, the possible expansion of abuse of dominance rules to cover privacy issues. Third, the application of abuse of dominance concepts to essential patents. And fourth, and probably most important, the evolution of the ‘object versus effect’ dichotomy under Article 102 TFEU.

We would like to thank the contributors for taking time away from their busy practices to prepare insightful and informative contributions to this fourth edition of The Dominance and Monopolies Review. We look forward to seeing what evolutions 2016 holds for the next edition of this book.
