Distribution, purchasing and antitrust law

Global digital trade is digital, but it is still the exchange of goods or services.

There are rules for this exchange, for example, in antitrust law, which is essential when setting up distribution or purchasing systems, license agreements, authorized dealer agreements, partner agreements, or framework supply agreements.

The aim of antitrust law, even on a global scale, is to ensure freedom of competition and prevent behavior restricting competition.

When drafting license agreements (e.g., to grant permission to use a registered design, in the case of SaaS, IaaS, or PaaS contract) or drafting distribution agreements (e.g., to grant permission to distribute a product), particular attention must be paid to antitrust law.
