On Friday, April 11th, 2008, the second leg of the Antitrust Marathon took place. A number of antitrust practitioners and scholars from Europe and North America met at the Competition Appeal Tribunal in London to discuss the comparative state of monopolization law. This meeting, co-sponsored by the Loyola University Chicago Institute for Consumer Antitrust Studies and the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, centred around four discussions: (i) 'European Economic Freedom: American Structuralism Revisited? What Room for Consumer Harm?'; (ii) 'Abuse vs Non-horizontal Mergers: Conflicting Theories of Harm?'; (iii) 'Bundling: Are US and European Views Converging?'; and (iv) 'Remedies'.

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 the relevant sections of the transcript.

Keywords: antitrust, competition law, market power, monopolization, abuse of dominance, EU law, mergers, economic freedom, bundling, remedies, divestiture, structural remedies, theories of harm
