Dr Pinar Akman, an Associate Professor of Law and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Business Law and Practice, has presented her research on competition law at the international congress of the International League of Competition (LIDC).

The International League of Competition Law (LIDC) is a long standing association which focuses on the study of competition (antitrust) law, intellectual property law and unfair competition, both at the national and international levels. Its annual congress was held in Turin, Italy on 18-21 September 2014. Dr Akman was invited to speak at the congress on the issue of most-favoured-customer clauses adopted by online platforms. These clauses are increasingly being scrutinised by competition authorities around the world and have been the subject of some recent, controversial decisions relating to Apple, booking.com and Expedia, etc.

The congress was attended by over 100 delegates from 20 different jurisdictions. The programme is available here.
