We have secured speakers and a date for this year’s Fall Antitrust Symposium. Given that we are a bit short on time, we’d like to get the date on everyone’s calendars as soon as possible (Committee Chairs, please get the word out to your members as well). Here are the details:
Date: November 21, 2014
Time: 8:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Location: Harvard Club, Cambridge Room
Speakers: Professor Kevin Murphy, Professor Kai-Uew Kühn, Jay Fastow, and Cynthia Richman
Topic: The panel will address the legal and economic implications of conditional pricing practices among firms in a supply chain and to compare those implications as they may arise in the U.S. and Europe. Conditional pricing will be construed broadly to include not only multi-product bundled discounts and single-product loyalty discounts but also exclusive dealing arrangements and economically coercive tying (as referred to in case law).
In addition, we are looking for some volunteers to help with the publicity/marketing. A flyer is on its way.
As always, we are looking for strong attendance in what is sure to be an interesting and informative panel.
