EU Competition Law in Context
Competition law belongs to the traditional core of Community internal market law and it continues to play an important part in EU law and the case-law of the Court of First Instance and the Court of Justice of the European Communities. Competition law does not form a static and hermetic domain, but should be seen in a broader context and as a dynamic area of law. The topics in this book include pure competition law issues, such as accountability and responsibility for competition law infringements, high pricing that becomes abusive, and the object or effect test under Article 82 EC. Moreover, the book includes competition law issues in a broader context, such as the influence of competition law on free movement rules, the application of competition law to international maritime transport, consumer interests in the application of competition law, unfair competition law and trade marks, confidentiality issues, the interplay between administrative law and competition law, or the principle of fiscal neutrality, not forgetting State aid issues. This festschrift draws together contributions from well-known experts in EU law and competition law, who are either current or former members or r?f?rendaires at one of the Community Courts. The book is a tribute to Judge Virpi Tiili, who, having left the Court of First Instance in Autumn 2009, will be remembered for her long and outstanding contribution to the Court's case-law.
