Second Edition of Disner, Antitrust Law for Business Lawyers: Questions, Answers, Law, and Commentary, Expands on Foreign and Internet Issues

A note by Bert Foer

We previously called attention to the publication by the American Law Institute-American Bar Association of the first edition of Eliot G. Disner’s often-amusing and always helpful handbook, Antitrust Law for Business Lawyers. The second edition is now out, having grown by 50 pages. The new material includes a section on European competition law (“The EU laws have one substantial contrast with U.S. antitrust laws: there are no criminal penalties under the EU laws, perhaps explaining why an unusually high number of European antitrust malefactors end up jailed in the United States.”); expanded questions and answers in the healthcare (“May Members of a Medical Network Fix Prices?” “Yes, if…there are so many ifs involved in getting to a ‘yes’ answer; please be patient while they are enumerated here.”), technology, and telecommunication areas; and discussion of the Microsoft antitrust cases.
