Gilbert Law Summaries on Antitrust (ed.11)

Mark A. Lemley

This section selects books on themes related to competition laws and economics. This compilation does not attempt to be exhaustive but rather a survey of themes important in the area. The survey usually covers publication over the last three months after publication of the latest issue of Concurrences. Publishers, authors and editors are welcome to send books to for review in this section.

The topics included are common law restraints of trade, federal antitrust laws (including Sherman Act, Clayton Act, Federal Trade Commission Act, interstate commerce requirement, and antitrust remedies), and monopolization (including relevant market, purposeful act requirement, and attempts and conspiracy to monopolize). Also included are collaboration among competitors (including horizontal restraints, division of markets, and group boycotts), vertical restraints, and mergers and acquisitions (including horizontal mergers, brown shoe analysis, vertical mergers, and conglomerate mergers). Further topics addressed are price discrimination—Robinson-Patman Act, unfair methods of competition, patent laws and their antitrust implications, and exemptions from antitrust laws.
