Michael Harker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Examines EU case law concerning alleged margin squeeze in the broadband internet sector to comment on the use of EU competition law to correct the failures of national regulatory bodies. Analyses the different forms of regulatory failure, and discusses the specific failures in the broadband margin squeeze cases. Considers why EU law treats competition law as a complement to regulation whereas, in the US, the presence of a regulatory framework tends to supplant the application of antitrust law.
