Antitrust Pitfalls for Manufacturer-Imposed Requirements
Structuring RPM Provisions and Overcoming Antitrust Risk in Territory and Customer Restrictions
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide best practices to counsel for manufacturers and others in the distribution chain for developing reasonable price, territory and customer restrictions. The panel will give special consideration of resale price maintenance agreements in state, federal and international jurisdictions.
- RPM and the Leegin decision
- State treatment
- Territory and customer restrictions
- Considerations for manufacturer restrictions upon dealers
The panel will review these and other key questions:
- How are federal courts and state and antitrust authorities currently responding to RPM challenges?
- How can businesses and their counsel best cope with the conflicting treatment of RPM agreements?
- When are franchised dealers with exclusive territories likely to be deemed impermissible restrictions on competition?
