Prof. Whish on the Intel Judgment
Professor Richard Whish (click here for his Friday Slot interview with us) has just written an editorial piece for the Journal of European Competition Law and Practice commenting on the General Court’s Intel Judgment (for our previous publications on the Judgment, see Pablo Ibañez´s “Intel and the problem with wrong economic assumptions” as well as the post on Wouter Wils’ piece, available here) [Btw, Pablo has written a proper article on the subject that will be out in a few days].
The editorial, which we are making available with the consent of both Prof. Whish and JECLP (thanks very much to both), predicts that “the Court of Justice will uphold the judgment of the General Court, not because it believes in the Dark Ages and enjoys wreckage, but because the judgment is perfectly sensible“. It then goes on to develop the reasons why he finds some criticism targetting the Judgment unconvincing.
The piece is as succint as it is interesting, so instead of summarizing it, we leave you with it:
