Beijing Qihoo Technology Co., Ltd. v. Tencent Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Tencent Computer System Co., Ltd. (Dispute over the Abuse of Market Dominant Position)—Analysis Methods and Ideas for the Definition of the Relevant Markets and the Abuse of Market Dominant Position in the Internet Environment
In the cases of abuse of market dominant position, the definition of the relevant market is a tool for assessing the market power of the operator and the impact of the alleged monopolistic behavior on the competition. And the definition of the relevant market is not the purpose. If the direct evidence can be given to exclude or obstruct the competition and the market position of the operator and the market impact of the alleged monopolistic behavior can be assessed, then there is no need to clearly define the relevant market in every case of abuse of market dominant position.
