Abstract:     
Antitrust squeezing claims may arise whenever unilateral or collective actions of some market participants cripple the ability of other market participants to compete effectively. One set of squeezing claims refer to restrictions on trade in intermediate products that are needed for production. Such claims essentially ask courts to craft duties to deal, which in turn raise many philosophical and ideological objections and their enforcement can be costly. We offer a framework for the understanding of squeezing claims that involve refusals to deal and unfavorable contractual terms.
