Abstract:     
The ACCC’s legal action for price fixing against the giant cardboard box company, Visy, and its billionaire owner, Richard Pratt, has captivated the media. This article investigates the significance of the case from a competition law enforcement perspective, examining various aspects of the Federal Court’s decision with respect to penalties, the implications of the case for the proposal to criminalise serious cartel conduct, and insights arising from the litigation by ‘victims’ of the cartel in relation to private enforcement of the competition provisions of the Trade Practices Act.
