International Antitrust Primer : A Guide to the Operation of United States, European Union and Other Key
About this item
An International Antitrust Primer discusses the substantial revisions and updates reflecting the worldwide activities undertaken by competition law authorities, including meeting the challenges posed by the digital age. Despite the continuing inter-governmental cooperation over the regulation of international commerce, significant cross-country differences persist in areas such as merger control, notification to authorities, and remedies deemed appropriate for antitrust enforcement. Accordingly, companies must be aware of the rules that apply in the countries in which they do business. This fourth edition—eleven years after the publication of the third edition—provides a thorough update on the status of competition regulation in a number of key jurisdictions, including the up-to-date case law involving the technology giants Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and Facebook.
What’s in this book:
Coverage focuses on the European Union and the United States—which continue to be foremost in the enforcement and refinement of comprehensive competition laws—but also takes into account the vast strides that are being made elsewhere, with chapters on South Korea, Japan, and India, as well as a chapter on the United Kingdom with a section on the post-Brexit implications. The book provides essential guidance on such issues of concern to business persons and their counsel as the following:
- intellectual property rights;
- extent and kind of criminal sanctions;
- extraterritorial reach;
- mergers and acquisitions;
- level and type of enforcement activity;
- effects of national foreign or domestic policy;
- permissible cooperation among competitors; and
- public procurement.
