Competition Law

European competition law has been the backbone of the EU Single Market for decades. In the digital era, it continues being one of the most active and consequential areas of EU law. Lexxion provides knowledge and updates to competition experts through a mix of legal publications and events.
For the latest in EU antitrust, mergers and cartels, and a unique perspective on the interplay between competition and regulatory law, experts turn to the quarterly European Competition and Regulatory Law Review (CoRe), the dedicated CoRe Blog and events.

Epic v Apple (3): two perspectives on app stores’ 30% commission fee

In a first blog post in this Epic v Apple series, we introduced the high-stakes dispute and the context necessary for understanding it. A second blog post discussed market power in app distribution and access to Apple and Google’s ecosystems under refusal to supply/foreclosure theories of harm. This third post zooms in on the most contentious feature of Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store: the 30% commission fee they charge on (in-)app purchases.

CoRe – European Competition and Regulatory Law Review

Official Blog of the European Competition and Regulatory Law Review (CoRe)

The CoRe Blog is the interactive online platform for up-to-date analysis of EU competition law developments. It’s the blog companion of the quarterly double blind peer-reviewed European Competition and Regulatory Law Review (CoRe). The CoRe Blog fills in the gaps that a 4-times-a-year journal can’t address: immediate updates and analysis of breaking news in EU competition and regulatory law and the opportunity to discuss these developments directly with other experts through our Comments section.

We want to hear what you think about the hot topics in EU competition and regulatory law. So share your thoughts in the Comments section of every blog post or submit your own post (500-2000 words) as an external author. The author of the most popular blog post in the last quarter will be published in the CoRe journal and get a free copy of an issue of their choice.
