Now in its third edition, this volume provides complete and specialized coverage of EU competition law applicable to vertical agreements, and detailed and practice-oriented analysis of the EU regulatory framework as applied the Commission and the EU courts. The authors consider issues directly relevant in the commercial world, answering questions such as: Under what conditions may a supplier impose territorial restrictions on his dealer network?: Is it possible to impose maximum retail prices?: Are customer restrictions permissible in a selective distribution system?: Can a supplier assume an exclusive supply obligation?: Is an exclusive supply-back obligation included in a subcontracting arrangement enforceable? The authors draw on their experience in this area of competition law to address the more complex issues relating to vertical restraints. They offer practical solutions to commercial problems and provide an indispensable tool for all practitioners in this field.
