On-line Pricing Issues – can lowest price guarantees ever be a bad thing?

21st January 2013

This event will discuss online platform pricing issues such as Most Favoured Nation clauses, the use of Resale Price Maintenance restrictions and the Principal / Agency relationship, and will aim to shed light on the following issues:

  • Is there anything special about the internet that makes it more susceptible to harm from MFNs and other price relationship agreements?
  • Are retail MFNs the same as RPM?
  • Is it harder to be a 'genuine agent' in the on-line sphere, can on-line platforms ever be 'retailers' and what is the economic rationale for the agency exemption?
  • How are these issues being tackled across different jurisdictions?
