Overview

Recently cited by the Tenth Circuit in Kay Electric Cooperative vs. City of Newkirk: “with its usual care Professor Areeda and Hovenkamp’s treatise traces all these warps and wefts” in analyzing a municipality’s antitrust immunity in light of state authorizing legislation.

The authoritative antitrust resource covering mergers and acquisitions, intellectual property and antitrust, predatory pricing, antitrust issues in healthcare, media, and other areas, monopolizing conduct, "substantial" market power, market share and buyer concentration, interlocking directors, refusals to deal, territorial customer limitation, product tying, contractual arbitration provisions; widely cited by the courts, including more than 100 citations by the Supreme Court and FTC combined. By Phillip E. Areeda, Herbert Hovenkamp

The authority of Areeda and Hovenkamp's Antitrust Law is second to none. It has been cited more than 50 times by the Supreme Court, more than 50 times by the FTC, and more than 1,050 times by the federal courts. Most recently it was cited by the Supreme Court in American Needle, Inc. v. National Football League. No other source gives you all the law to avoid antitrust liability as you:

  • Plan marketing strategies and develop pricing policies
  • Structure mergers and acquisitions with attention to potential antitrust consequences
  • Prove - or defend against - antitrust injury, monopolization, conspiracy, tying, and other allegation

Among the real-world examples and proven strategies you can apply directly to your own cases, you'll find clear discussions of

  • Intellectual property and antitrust
  • Predatory pricing
  • Antitrust issues in healthcare, media, and other areas
  • Monopolizing conduct
  • "Substantial" market power
  • Market share and buyer concentration
  • Interlocking directors
  • Refusals to deal
  • Territorial customer limitation
  • Product tying
  • Contractual arbitration provisions
  • Plus in-depth examination of thousands of cases.

The 2017 Supplement brings you up to date on many important developments in the law, including:

  • Decisions regarding pay-for-delay pharmaceutical settlements and pharmaceutical product hopping (see ¶¶205g, 2046d6).
  • Updated coverage of the aftermath of the Second Circuit's case finding antitrust liability for price-fixing agreements among Apple and book publishers involving e-books (see ¶2022f).
  • Updates on post-Twombly pleading cases, including the Fourth Circuit's SD3 decision, sustaining a complaint that electric saw makers conspired not to install a particular safety device on their saws (see ¶1416).
  • Complete coverage of the standing and merits issues raised by the LIBOR bank-rate-fixing conspiracy (see ¶¶337, 1434).
  • Full coverage of recent FTC hospital merger cases, in particular Penn State Hershey in the Third Circuit and Advocate Health in the Seventh Circuit, both of which call the Elzinga-Hogarty relevant geographic market definition test into question in hospital merger cases (see ¶¶550a3, 970d); also, full coverage of the case sustaining the FTC's challenge to a merger between Staples and Office Depot (see ¶932c).
  • Treatment of the Second Circuit's American Express decision rejecting a government challenge to anti-steering rules (see ¶¶562e, 565, 1505).
  • Discussion of the D.C. Circuit's Osborn decision holding that plaintiffs adequately alleged conspiracy of Visa card issuers setting ATM access fees (see ¶1478).
  • Analysis of the Third Circuit's Eisai case rejecting a challenge to the defendant's market-share discount program (see ¶¶749e, 1807b2).
