Abstract

This paper discusses the judgment of the EU General Court of 12 June 2014 in the Intel case. It argues that the EU case-law on the use of exclusivity rebate systems by undertakings occupying a dominant position is economically sound, and that the criticism directed at this case-law is ill-founded.

Keywords: antitrust, competition, abuse of dominance, exclusivity, rebates, law and economics
