Chillin'Competition

Relaxing whilst doing Competition Law is not an Oxymoron

Groovy, baby

Pablo’s exhausting, never-ending, coma-inducing, comprehensive and certainly influential posts on Post Danmark II (see here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here) [the fever has passed and he has moved on to a new obsession, Lundbeck (mercy, please!) 😉 rightly emphasized the importance of establishing in any situation a link of causality. Events such as a market share increase may well be attributable to the superior quality of a product but also to non-merit based actions.

When this morning we awoke to a sudden increase in traffic on the blog we first thought that it was attributable to the great interest of our most recent posts. Wrong. The real reason was the traffic diverted to Chillin’Competition by Politico’s  Playbook.

Today’s issue of the must-read daily briefing of EU news included a link to our interview with Judge Marc van der Woude (just appointed Vice-President of the General Court; congratulations!) (btw, this in turn has led to quite a few people discovering THE RAID).

And in passing, the Playbook (Ryan Heath) referred to “groovy antitrust blog Chillin’Competition” 😎

Most kind!  Politico now joins a rare short-list of people who think Pablo is groovy (a list that until today included only a Greek lawyer). My situation is worse, as not even my wife would remotely think that…

P.S. Busy day at work; tomorrow we’ll be back with something more substantial (and groovy).
