The EU Competition Rules
This book - designed as an introduction for students of EU competition law - provides a thorough selection of case law. The primary criterion for selection has been whether a particular case has contributed to the development of one of the doctrines or notions that are so important to the understanding of EU competition law. All cases and decisions have been incorporated with their key recitals and texts only, so as to make the amount of text easier to comprehend. Furthermore, for each case there is the mention of its relevance within the legal system, and each case is accompanied with a short summary of its facts and circumstances. The sequence of cases follows a logical order in which EU competition law may or, in the author's view, should be taught. This third edition includes cross-references which refer to relevant sources in EU secondary legislation and Commission Notices, a selection of further cases on the same issue, leading scholarly articles on the subject, and interesting annotations adding to the understanding of a particular case. In this way, the book offers the possibility for further reading to those who would find this necessary without burdening the students with extra and extensive obligatory reading material. The book also provides the legal practitioner or in-house counsel with invaluable and time-saving background information in this important field of the law. All texts are in conformity with the new Article numbering and the terminology as used in the Treaty of Lisbon.
