Between Regulation and Deregulation

Studies on the limitations of competition law and its ambiguous application to the supply of electricity and telecommunications in the EU

By Christian Bergqvist

It seems to be generally accepted by academics and practitioners that competition law is ill-equipped to deal with the complex world of telecommunications services and electricity due to a number of unspecified shortfalls making the scope for applying it to these sectors limited. This book demonstrates that this perception is manifestly wrong. It is not that competition law should not be considered subject to limitations, but more in respect of the limited scope for its application to the delivery of electricity and telecommunications services as this would not do justice to the very active role played by competition law. This book presents the studies on the limitations of competition law and its ambiguous application to the supply of electricity and telecommunications in the EU. The book is based on a PhD dissertation. [Subject: Competition Law, IT Law, Media Law]
