Professor of law, Wayne State University Law School, and former general counsel to the Federal Trade Commission. At various times in the recent past, I have served as a member of the Competition Authority of Ireland, have been of counsel at the global law firm Covington & Burling, and have been associate vice president of Wayne State University. This chapter is written entirely in my personal capacity and the views expressed herein are not the views of the Competition Authority, Covington & Burling, and/or Wayne State University. Although largely written earlier, this chapter will be published during my service with the Competition Authority, and thus I especially wish to emphasize that these are the views of an academic prior to appointment. I also must note that this is just a brief introduction to a subject on which whole books and lengthy reports have been written. See ABA section of
Antitrust Law, Monopolization, and Dominance Handbook (2011); U.S. Department of Justice, Competition and Monopoly: Single-Firm Conduct under Section 2 of the Sherman Act (2008) (later withdrawn). Whenever there is any doubt, legal counsel should be consulted.
