Forthcoming Art 82 case

Apparently tomorrow the Commission will issue its Intel decision. Anticipating a finding of abuse, there is a working paper anticipating the decision from the AAI, here.

Bar the size of the undertaking, I am not sure that this decision raises any big legal issues. What will be interesting to observe is how much more sophisticated the analysis will be. It seems the likely abuses are pretty standard exclusionary stuff designed to foreclose the entry of a particular firm.

Good luck to those who will read it - it will likely be as long as the Microsoft decision. Legal issues and analysis hidden/blurred by countless passages of technological information.
