- The Norwegian Competition Authority issues a draft paper on its approach to abusive price discrimination
Final published version, 90.6 KB, PDF document
The Norwegian Competition Authority has issued a draft paper on abusive (price) discrimination, outlining how the agency plans to approach the matter, which should be most welcome. Essentially, the legal position is at best unclear, creating room for misapplications. The otherwise famous Post Danmark I case, e.g., originated in a misguided national attempt to apply Article 102 to differences offered in terms but not clearly cable of thwarting of competition. Moreover, while promising in 2005 to issue a separate paper on discriminatory abuse, DG COMP has never delivered on this, and in all likelihood, never will, leaving the matter open and unsettled.
