Press release

 ethe Courts cannot use the Commissionfs margin of discretion – either as regards the choice of factors taken into account in the application of the criteria mentioned in the Guidelines or as regards the assessment of those factors – as a basis for dispensing with the conduct of an in-depth review of the law and of the facts. The review of legality is supplemented by the unlimited jurisdictioncf (paras.129, 130); eIt must be noted in that regard that although the General Court repeatedly referred to the ediscretionf, the esubstantial margin of discretionf or the ewide discretionf of the Commission, including in paragraphs 52 to 54, 99, 114, 136 and 150 of the judgment under appeal, such references did not prevent the General Court from carrying out the full and unrestricted review, in law and in fact, required of it.

f (para.136) / The Court of Justice upholds the judgments of the General Court and the Commissionfs decisions relating to the two cartels in the copper industrial and copper plumbing tubes sectors; The review carried out by the General Court in respect of Commission decisions imposing fines in competition matters is not contrary to the principle of effective judicial protection laid down by the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union

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

In all our cases we start by looking at the likelihood of "harm" to consumers...‚½‚¾‚µALimiting a distributors' freedom to sell to a consumer that visited its website is a hardcore restriction of competition law, The Court ruled that such partitioning broke competition rules and hindered the freedom to provide services throughout the EU. This should be good news for football lovers watching their favourite teams across Europec
