Finnish Competition Law Association publishes article authored by Kris Van Hove, Argyrios Papaefthymiou and Margot Vogels on “A new landscape for digital antitrust in Europe: walking the ever-narrowing line between competition on the merits and anti-competitive conduct” in the Association’s 2022 Yearbook
Kris Van Hove (Partner at Van Bael & Bellis), Argyrios Papaefthymiou (Associate at Linklaters) and Margot Vogels (Associate at Van Bael & Bellis) have authored a new article on “A new landscape for digital antitrust in Europe: walking the ever-narrowing line between competition on the merits and anti-competitive conduct” in the Finnish Competition Law Association Yearbook 2022.
The article updates – and substantially expands on – a commentary published by the same authors in Competition Policy International (CPI) in March of this year entitled “Revising the competition law rulebook for digital markets in Europe: an update” (available here). The commentary was itself a sequel to a previous CPI article written by two of the same authors on the same subject matter in 2020 at a time when regulatory action was still being contemplated, developed and (hotly) debated (available here).
This third part of the trilogy systematically unpacks and critically assesses the various regulatory responses to and enforcement actions against certain practices in the digital sector that are of concern to regulators in Europe. It notably analyses the Digital Markets Act in its final form, which was published in the Official Journal of the European Union today.
