The writers give a brief explanation of the goal of competition policy, introduce the reader to important terms and procedures in competition law, and give their perspectives on the various problems that come up while examining market behaviour. They focus mainly on the consequences of competition law for commercial phenomena including distribution agreements, intellectual property rights licences, cartels, joint ventures, and mergers when describing the law in its economic and market context. The book incorporates a wide range of materials, including rulings, decrees, prescriptions, and periodicals. This authoritative text on competition law is frequently used in courts, law offices, economic consultancies, universities, and competition regulators.
