Based on a description of the structure and competitive relationships that characterize PSI markets, and in the light of some case studies and legal decisions from several EU Member States, this document addresses what legal rules a new Directive, amending Directive 2003/98/CE on the re-use of Public Sector Information, could introduce in order to both discourage anticompetitive business practices and make them easier to be detected and proved.
This paper was drafted within the WG1 - Subgroup Competition of the European Thematic Network LAPSI (Legal Aspects of Public Sector Information).
