This book presents the most thoroughgoing model yet offered to ensure the emergence of a genuinely competitive electronic communications industry in Europe. In the course of its in-depth analysis the discussion focuses on such factors as the following :
 EU telecommunications policy as revealed in liberalization and harmonization legislative measures ;
 the EU electronic communications framework ;
 case law covering issues of refusal to supply and the essential facilities doctrine ;
 application of Article 82 EC to bottlenecks ;
 specific types of an undertakings unilateral behaviour that may often occupy NRAs and competition authorities in the context of their ex post competition law investigations under Article 82 EC ;
 strategic alliances and mergers in the move toward multimedia ;
 access to premium content and the emergence of new media ;
 the scope of content regulation in the online environment ; and
 broadband (regulation of local loop unbundling and bitstream access).

The book also provides practical guidance on issues concerning the complicated market definition and analysis mechanism promulgated by the European Commission’s Recommendation and Guidelines.
