Intel Judgement by the Court of Justice of the European Union: Part 1 (Extraterritorial Application of EU Competition Law) and Part 2 (Loyalty Rebates)



Wilko van Weert and Mai Muto wrote these bylined articles on the implications for Japanese companies of the Court of Justice of the EU ruling in Intel Corporation Inc. v European Commission. The ruling held that loyalty rebates by dominant companies must be considered for their specific economic effects and are not necessarily anticompetitive. It also clarified for the first time that the European Commission can rely on the qualified effects doctrine in order to establish its jurisdiction over foreign conduct.
