ALPSP Training Course: NEW Competition Law: Sales essentials webinar series - 28 Sep 2017 Antitrust and competition laws govern the competitive process and promote fair and open competition. They are intended to ensure that the best products are available at the lowest prices to the greatest number of consumers, and to protect consumers and the process. These laws generally forbid agreements or joint actions between competitors regarding prices, bids, product or territory allocations, customers or suppliers; agreements or joint actions between suppliers and customers that restrain or tend to reduce competition; and conduct by a single entity that is intended to establish or maintain a dominant market position or monopoly. Violations of these laws can lead to severe monetary fines for companies and fines and even imprisonment for individuals. This webinar will focus on good practice and how to conduct your publishing business in a legally compliant way.
