This paper, prepared as a chapter for a forthcoming book on the Law and Economics of Antitrust, examines the rule of reason and its application to vertical restraints after the Supreme Court's 2007 decision in Leegin v Kat's Korner. The author argues that the decision can be understood in terms of contrasting theories of competition and the role of property rights and provides a contrast between the current US approach and the categorical approach to regulating vertical restraints in the European Union.
