Market Definition in Antitrust: Theory and Case Studies provides a comprehensive analysis of the issues involved in defining markets in antitrust cases.

United States. Similarly, the analysis of geographic markets has come to recognize the limitations of the tests that focus exclusively on shipment patterns.

Throughout its life, federal antitrust law has been subject to literally dozens of limitations. Specific statutory exemptions have existed since 1914 and currently about 30 of them remain in force. Antitrust is likewise limited by several distinct, voluminous bodies of case law that set out judicially created exemptions, to shield politics, labor, and a broad range of industries subject to other regulation. Several of these doctrines have become complex and uncertain. The scope of antitrust, in other words, now comprises a Product Code 5030623 substantial body of law in its own right. This new Handbook on the Scope of Antitrust offers a first-of-its-kind, user-friendly solution in the form of a onestop, black-letter-focused book of practical guidance on all exemptions and immunities issues, treating them in an integrated fashion as components of one body of law.

Chapter II addresses the threshold issue of what is not covered by the Sherman Act—namely, non-commercial restraints and “on-field” rules and discipline. Chapter III presents the basic analytical framework of the Sherman Act’s application to the sports industry: the elements of Section 1 and Section 2 claims, the singleentity doctrine, and modes of analyses (per se, “quick look,” and full rule of reason for Section 1 cases and Section 2 analytical principles). Chapter IV focuses on the application of these principles to specific recurring issues and subjects, including market definition, market power, and a number of challenged “restraints” (e.g., involving players, teams, equipment, broadcasts). Chapter V explores sports issues in private litigation, including standing, class actions, injunctions, and damages.

Significant segments of American business and professions are represented by trade and professional associations. Today, trade and professional associations have moved from a reactive role to one of leadership. Associations are setting product standards, certifying the expertise of professionals, and actively opposing or promoting new legislative and regulatory initiatives. But association activities raise potential antitrust risks and their exposure to antitrust challenge has increased proportionately.

Antitrust and Associations Handbook

This handbook helps association counsel and executives to $129.00 AT Members understand the antitrust issues associated with association activities, and minimize their risk. It begins with a discussion of basic antitrust principles and the system of public and private remedies for violations, before turning to more detailed treatment of the analytical framework applicable to collaborative activities involving competitors.

In addition, many association issues today fall outside the classic trade association mold and this important book deals with new major policy and case law developments in the following areas: • Professional associations, such as those in medicine, dentistry, law, and engineering, whose members typically are individual professionals rather than companies. • Standard-setting organizations, which increasingly are technical standard-setting bodies that exist outside of traditional industry trade associations. Notably, many of the recent antitrust developments in this area have not involved allegations of industrywide misconduct but instead have focused on single-firm conduct or efforts by one segment of an industry to gain an economic advantage over rivals through questionable means. • Various other forms of competitor collaborations, such as joint purchasing or joint selling alliances and R&D joint ventures. Included in this category are physician specialty groups and real estate multiple listing services. These types of collaborations generally do not operate along the lines of traditional trade associations.

Competition policy in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere is embedded in a complex regime of laws predicated on the public policy choices of each jurisdiction. While other books provide a comprehensive treatment of the current state of antitrust law in the United States, this three-volume hardcover set examines directly and in detail, the technical legal framework of competition law and the policy issues that lie behind the law. The focus of the book is a complete and detailed perspective on issues in the design and enforcement of competition law, and is not a treatise on the case law.

The proper antitrust treatment of monopolizing conduct is an area of perennial uncertainty and debate.

The Monopolization and Product Code 5030547 Dominance Handbook addresses the antitrust rules and $159.00 List Price principles that govern unilateral business conduct by $129.00 AT Members firms with substantial market positions, referred to in the United States as the law of monopolization.
