Título: Upfront access payments, category management and the new regulation of vertical restraints in EU competition law : importing the retail side of the story
Autor(es): Ioannis Lianos
Resumo: By integrating more fully the retailer power story, the new vertical restraints guidelines and block exemption regulation provide for a more equilibrated regime for vertical restraints in Europe. The objective of the Commission was not only to address the important concern of retailer power and its possible anticompetitive effects in a retail sector that is characterized by increasing concentration, although not necessarily increasing profitability, but also to respond to the concerns (and political pressure) over big distribution and the power of multi-brand retailers that have been expressed at the national level, with the adoption of a hard or a soft law type of approach in order to regulate the relation between supliers and retailers. By bringing these concerns within the realm of EU competition law, the Commission offers an alternative relief valve that takes more into account the effect of these practices on consumers than the regulations adopted at the national level.

Título: New block exemption regulation for the insurance sector : main chances
Autor(es): Laura Stefanescu
Resumo: The article presents the review process of the Insurance Block Exemption Regulation (BER) Nº 358/2003, for a period about two yars and a half. It also focuses on the main changes in the new Insurance BER Nº 267/2010, i.e. the renewal of only two of the four types of cooperation that the previous BER covered, namely agreements concerning (i) joint compilations, tables and studies and (ii) pools. The article explains the main changes regarding these two types of agreements but also gives the reason why the other two, i.e. standard policy conditions and security devices, have not been renewed.

Título: Modernizing the approach to article 101 TFEU in respect to horizontal agreements : has the commission's interpretation eventually "come of age"?
Autor(es): Arianna Andreangeli
Resumo: This paper considers the recent trends guiding the interpretation of Article 1o1 TFEU and examines their recent development by having regard to the new Commission Guidelines on its application to horizontal agreements. It is argued that the Commission, faithful to its agenda of "modernisation" for the substantive rules governing prima facie anti-competitive, has made a significant step toward bridging the gap between its administrative statements regarding the application of the Treaty competition rules to individual cases and the more recent case law of the EU Courts. The 2010 Guidelines on Horizontal agreements will be scrutinised in light of important judgments such as Wouters, Meca Medina and O2 v Commission and will be relied upon as evidence of the Commission growing commitment to a "flexible" and economics-based approach to the concept of restriction of competition enshrined in Article 101 (1) TFEU. The paper will also consider in brief the implications of this development for overall structure of Article 101 and especially for the relation existing between its first and its third paragraph.

Título: La pratique de l' autorité française de concurrence en matiére de restrictions verticales
Autor(es): Laurence Idot
Resumo: This paper summarises the recent pratice of the French Competition Authority (FCA) in the field of vertical restrictions. In the field of distribution broadly speaking, the French pratice follows of course the EU rules. However, as many cases are treated at the national level (more thanfifty decisions have been adopted since 1st May 2004), the experience of the FCA is broader and richer than the Commission's one. The ain examples concern the development of a specific standard of proof for RPM, the treatment of restraints in Internet sales and the cumulative effect of exclusivities in the field of new technology. Furthermore, the French example illustrates the difficulties to deal with the specific issues of buying power both through some specific tools, like the title IV of French law on restrictive practices, or the usual tools of competition law like merger control. The FCA has decided to develop its advisory role and has just delivered very important opinions in this field.
