Competition Law: Concepts, Law and Practice by Neha Vyas is part of EBC’s Commercial Titles Series. Competition policy is widely influenced by the conditions prevalent in the market, political situation of a country and the economic theories adopted during a time period. These uncertain elements make every case different and therefore the author has not only relied upon developed jurisprudence on the matter in the book but has also delved upon the fundamental economic concepts and international developments so as to give a full understanding of competition law.
The book has 12 chapters and includes topics such as economic analysis of competition law, it’s origin and history, tools essential for determining market power, rule of reason and per se rule and various forms of vertical and horizontal agreements. Topics such as abuse of dominant power, merger controls, regulatory authorities and penalty provisions are also covered in this book. The final chapters of this book deal with the interplay between IPR and competition law, formulating competition policy for the digital world and competition advocacy in the Indian context. It also explores the principle of extraterritoriality through case laws in the US, EU and Indian jurisdictions.
In the appendix, the Bare Act of Competition Act, 2002 and other important rules and regulations related to competition law have been included.
This book is a one-stop solution for readers who want to pursue their career in competition law practice and want a comprehensive understanding of the subject and it is also for those who want to use it for academic purposes.
