    In December 2018, the European Commission fined Guess €40 million for imposing several hard-core restrictions on their authorized retailers/franchisees in relation to online search advertising, online sales, territorial limitations, and dictating resellers' prices. Similarly, Pioneer and other consumer electronics manufacturers have been fined, and several cases regarding merchandise licensing are ongoing. The timing and outcome of these cases call for increased awareness on competition laws and their effect on a cross-border franchise/distribution network.

    Beginning with an update of recent events in Europe, faculty will explore the applicability of competition laws to franchise networks globally, which, in many cases, will look at activities of the franchisor or brand owner that are not specifically addressed by a franchise or other commercial agreement. Topics will include resale price maintenance, territorial restrictions, selective distribution and quality/quantity criteria, internet platform restrictions, horizontal and vertical data sharing, and the use of pricing algorithms. The upcoming EU Vertical Restraints Block Exemption regulation review will be touched upon and placed in a global perspective. Is this trend of increased focus on vertical restraints compliance limited to Europe or should compliance efforts be heightened in other parts of the world as well? How can uniformity and strategic alignment be kept if rules are stricter in some parts of the world (EU) than others? Practical aspects and solutions will be explored.
