German Antitrust Law is the definitive source of analysis and commentary on the complex and detailed "Act Against Restraints of Competition" and all its various amendments. The 5th Edition takes account of the Sixth Amendment of the Antitrust act which came into force on January 1, 1999. The Amendment attempts to simplify the provisions of the Act and to harmonize German and EC law. Major parts of the Act were re-written and several far-reaching changes and amendments were made.
German Antitrust Law covers every provision of the "Act," which includes the substantive provisions relating to restrictive business practices, enforcement (agencies, courts, proceedings) and the scope of application of the Act. Besides including the full text of the Act (in Both German and English), Appendices include official announcements, memoranda and regulations that impact on German antitrust law.
