Aftermarkets Discussion

Read: Eastman Kodak Co v Image Technical Services Inc 504 US 451 (1992)

Please enter a brief discussion addressing one or more of these points.
1) who defined the market correctly in your view, the majority or the dissent? Should competition law bother with aftermarkets?
2) How would the EC Commission have defined the market applying the 1997 Notice? The OFT with its market definition procedures?

Book's Out

Apologies for taking a long summer holiday with the blog. Normal service shall resume now that term has started.

The book aorund which this blog rotates is now out, you can buy it from the publisher (Cambridge University Press) and also Amazon (cheaper from Amazon). I am sure there is more intra-brand competition from retailers, if anyone knows where the book can be obtained more cheaply, do write a comment here and tell others - market imperfections can always be cured by savvy consumers.

Each post is usually earmarked with the relevant chapter of the book, I hope that helps. From time to time I will note specific pages which a posting updates too.

As always, comments on how I might improve this blog are welcome.
