The Impact of EEC Competition Law on the Music Industry

Fine, Frank L. | January 1, 1992

The purpose of this article is to examine the relevance of EEC competition law (or antitrust law as it is known in the United States) to the music industry. EEC antitrust cases concerning other media, such as satellite broadcasting, are discussed to the extent that they are relevant. It will be shown that EEC antitrust law has a pervasive effect on the music industry and will play an important role as the industry exploits the EEC market.
