Su Sun publishes Antitrust Source article comparing China and EU case decisions on loyalty rebates

Dr. Su Sun has published “Raising the Bar: How Does China’s Tetra Pak Decision Measure Up to the ECJ’s Requirements for Loyalty Rebate Cases?” (co-authored with Dr. Fei Deng) in the February 2018 issue of the Antitrust Source. The article analyzes China’s State Administration of Industry and Commerce’s Tetra Pak decision in view of the European Court of Justice’s Intel judgment. Comparing and contrasting these two rulings on loyalty rebates, the authors conclude that although they were generally consistent in principle, the ECJ’s judgment sets a higher standard than was contained in the SAIC’s decision in its reasoning for a finding of liability.
