On Friday, October 5th, 2007 over two dozen antitrust scholars from Europe and North America met at Loyola University Chicago to discuss the comparative state of monopolization law. This meeting, co-sponsored by the Loyola University Chicago Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies and British Institute of International and Comparative Law, revolved around findings of the Antitrust Modernization Committee and a series of issue papers created for the panel discussion itself.
What follows is an edited transcript of the panel discussion. The Issue papers prepared for the discussion define the scope of each segment and precede each of the four sections of the transcript. The papers and the discussion include The Role of Monopolization; Proof of Market Power and Consumer Harm; The Monopolization Offense; and Remedies.
