    The DOJ Case Against DirectTV: Tough Negotiations or Antitrust Violations?

    12 PM EST

    Hardball tactics are nothing new in business negotiations.  But can tough negotiations cross the line into antitrust violations, even when there has been no agreement to fix prices?  The U.S. Department of Justice has made those and other allegations in a recent lawsuit against DirecTV.  DOJ alleges that DirecTV tried to influence its negotiations over the right to telecast Los Angeles Dodgers baseball games by sharing information with DirecTV’s own competitors.  Join us for a lively discussion about this timely topic.
