The fourth roundtable of the conference “New frontiers of Antitrust”, Paris, 10 February 2012, was dedicated to the distinction between anticompetitive object and anticompetitive effect.

In the last contribution, Christophe Lemaire, partner at Ashurst review what has (or should have) changed in the distinction.
