Abstract

This article analyses and comments on Yamato v. Japan Post, one of Japan’s leading cases on predatory pricing. The case clarified the test to assess whether prices are predatory and, hence, unlawful. It also offers a glimpse at the intense competition in Japan's parcel delivery market.

Keywords: competition law, antitrust law, predatory pricing
