Article „Extraterritorial Application of Competition Law: Different Angles – Same Conclusion“

The article „Extraterritorial Application of Competition Law: Different Angles – Same Conclusion“, written by associate Rimantas Daujotas, was published in the IO: Regulation, Antitrust & Privatization eJournal Vol 3, Issue 101, June 28, 2011.

The article analysed an odd situation for competition law – how can different competition laws of different countries protect their local markets from the anticompetitive harm which is caused by the conduct of foreign companies, while the conduct of their large businesses (national champions) abroad can bring substantial welfare and development to their local economies. The article provided examples of extraterritorial application of competition law, measures taken and propositions on how to address this dilemma.
