Abstract

This publication (of 169 pages) represents the proceedings of a roundtable on resale price maintenance held at the OECD in February 1997. The proceedings includes a background paper on resale price maintenance prepared by the OECD Secretariat and submissions from 16 countries describing how resale price maintenance is addressed in each country. Issues addressed include the economics of resale price maintenance, double-marginalisation, free-riding, use of resale price
maintenance for collusion and the legal issues surrounding enforcement of prohibitions against resale price maintenance.
