The European Court of Justice's Intel Decision
11 AM EDT
On September 6, 2017, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) delivered its decision in the Intel case. The ECJ set aside the General Court judgment and held that it is not necessarily illegal for a dominant company to grant rebates conditional on exclusivity. If a company can show evidence that the rebates are not capable of causing anti-competitive foreclosure, the European Commission (EC) must analyze all relevant market circumstances before finding an infringement. The ruling provides some clarity but leaves other questions unanswered. The ruling also has jurisdictional and procedural implications.
