Title: Oregon Law Review : Vol. 89, No. 3, p. 885-914 : Antitrust Immunities
Author: Farmer, Susan Beth
Abstract: Iam pleased to be here today to speak about an important issue in American antitrust law: immunities and exemptions that limit or preclude the application of antitrust laws to certain conduct or industries. The core message of my remarks today is that the changing dynamics of many industries coupled with the increasing analytical rigor that courts and antitrust enforcement agencies apply should alleviate the concerns that have been cited by advocates of exemptions. Free market competition is a fundamental and core principle of this country. As the bipartisan Antitrust Modernization Commission recognized, just as private constraints on competition can be harmful to consumer welfare, so can government restraints. Thus, the use of such restraints should be minimized.
