Parallel imports and the development of EC Competition Law (English)
Parallel imports often lead to lowered prices and is therefore regarded as good from a consumer's point of view. From a business'point of view this is not always the case. When do parallel imports occur? Is it possible to prevent parallel imports to protect an introduction of a product in another member state? The purpose of this thesis is to present situations where parallel imports occur and to see if it is compatible with competition law to prevent parallel imports. Furthermore I will analyse the future development after the group exemption of vertical restraints enters into force in June 2000. RESULTS: I believe that the group exemption of verical restraints will lead to an increasing amount of businesses setting up in other countries. As a result of the increasing internationalisation, prices will fall which leads to decreasing parallel imports. I also consider that it should be possible to prevent parallel imports for a short time in order to protect an introduction abroad.
