Example text

433 US 36 (1997). TODAYS SUBTLE WEAPONS 27 price competition (the first being more restrictive than the latter) and in any case the Chicago economists said that it too should be assessed case by case. Was that where we wanted to get to? TRENDS IN RECENT CASES The Court has never got there, yet in subsequent cases it came close, and even showed glimpses of the new boundary to which the price-fixing bar itself might be shifted. The most exemplary case in this connection is perhaps Sharp,6 decided in 1988 by a majority opinion written by Judge Scalia (a lawyer noted for his conservatism and appointed by President Reagan).

Eleven years later came the Court's verdict in the case of Sylvania, a TV manufacturer that had lost market (it had gone down to 1 per cent) and in order to climb back had successfully organized (going back up to 5 per cent) a franchising network, with the obligation on retailers in the network to sell only from premises agreed with Sylvania 4 United States v. Arnold Schwinn & Co. 388 US 365 (1967). 26 TECHNICAL PROFILE: THE USA 5 itself. The case was similar to Schwinn, but could also be distinguished from it: as to the facts, from the absence of any market power for the manufacturer, and as to law because the limits imposed on the retailer here were not on the choice of whom to sell to but only on the places to sell from.

The implicit one is that such a pervasive and rigorous principle is asserted to the extent that it serves to protect another principle, a higher one in 1966, that of market integration. For the territory protected by Consten's rigid exclusivity coincided with that of the French State, and both the Commission and the Court saw this protection as persistence of the segmentation of economic activities along national frontiers, violating the "Grundnorm" of the whole Community system. We shall have to get used to the (less than excellent) habit of European case law of setting out heavy positions of principle (like this one on the value of intra-brand competition) that nonetheless have an underground relative value, with the consequence that they are later denied once the reason that led to their formulation is no longer at stake.
