Abstract

This essay in the University of Chicago Law Review's Antitrust Symposium challenges the view adopted in the Third Circuit's en banc decision in LePage's v. 3M with respect to multiproduct discounting. It argues that mixed bundling is a pervasive, and generally pro-consumer, form of price competition that should be disapproved only where it effectively amounts to predatory pricing.

Keywords: antitrust, predatory pricing
