The provisions of European Union law on cartels, and in particular Council Regulation (EC) No 1/2003 of 16 December 2002 on the implementation of the rules on competition laid down in Articles 101 TFEU and 102 TFEU, must be interpreted as not precluding a person who has been adversely affected by an infringement of European Union competition law and is seeking to obtain damages from being granted access to documents relating to a leniency procedure involving the perpetrator of that infringement. It is, however, for the courts and tribunals of the Member States, on the basis of their national law, to determine the conditions under which such access must be permitted or refused by weighing the interests protected by European Union law

Digital Agenda: Commission underlines commitment to ensure open internet principles applied in practice   @                @

There is no set definition of 'net neutrality' but it will be a legal requirement under EU law as from 25 May 2011 that Member States' telecoms regulatory authorities promote the ability of internet users "to access and distribute information or run applications and services of their choice" (Article 8(˜4)g of the telecoms Framework Directive 2002/21/EC, as amended by Directive 2009/140/EC).

- eThe essence of net neutrality and the issues underpinning the debate concern first and foremost how best to preserve the openness of this platform and to ensure that it can continue to provide high-quality services to all and to allow innovation to flourish, while contributing to enjoyment of and respect for fundamental rights, such as freedom of expression and freedom to conduct business.f

- eConcerns were raised that blocking, though currently limited mainly to VoIP, could be extended in the future to other services, such as television broadcasting via the internet.f

Recent developments and future priorities in EU competition policy

Joaquín Almunia Vice President of the European Commission responsible for Competition Policy

International Competition Law Forum St. Gallen, 8 April 2011

f It has been – and still is – my responsibility to make sure that the massive amount of public subsidies would not distort competition in the financial markets and that the banks that asked for them would restructure and return to viability.f [Regulation and Competition] ; eEU merger control – together with our internal market rules – is key here. Article 21 of the Merger Regulation allows Member States to take into account legitimate public interests such as media plurality, public security, and prudential rules. But the same provision also gives the European Commission the power to ensure that Member States do not put forward unjustified obstacles to cross-border mergers with EU implications.f [Internal Market / Merger]; eIn the first months of 2011 we have looked into mergers involving Chinese state owned companies: China National Bluestar/Elkem and Huaneng/Intergen were cleared in phase one and more cases can be expected. In the cases that we have examined, we have used the same criteria we adopt to assess mergers involving companies controlled by the Member StatescAmong other things, we try to determine whether the companies manage their business strategy independently; whether the decision-making power lies with the controlling entity above them, at central or regional level, and to what extent they effectively compete with other public companies. In other words, we look carefully at whether, through the State, companies in the same sector act as one or different entities. This is not because they are foreign or we have a prejudice against State control, but because it is a relevant aspect for assessing if competition will be significantly reduced or not.f [Global Dimension]
