Abstract:     
This paper analyzes the Spanish National Competition Commission Decision of May 19, 2009, which fines 'Abertis' for abuse of dominant position. The abusive practice consisted in imposing excessive penalty clauses in contracts with national television channels. Penalty clauses in exclusive contracts may have effects on competition, either positive or negative. However, the National Competition Commission forgets the formers and therefore concludes that those clauses are anticompetitive.
