Abstract

MFN clauses are often applied on platform markets, through which the seller is obliged to offer its products on a platform under the best conditions. From the competition law perspective these clauses are controversial. In the past, courts have classified such clauses as restrictive vertical agreements which abused dominant position on the relevant market. Based on such decisions, the following articlehighlights the competitive economic impact as well as the competitive admissibility of these clauses.
