09h00 – 10h15 HOT TOPICS IN CARTEL ENFORCEMENT

Leniency has become an attractive tool for cartel participants, and antitrust agencies throughout the Americas are immersed in cartel investigations. This panel will explore a variety of issues from the perspective of enforcers and the defense. Topics considered will include the intricacies of cartel proceedings in multiple jurisdictions, including intermediate goods and component parts, double counting and the potential for dual prosecution of individuals; differing approaches with leniency confidentiality and safeguards; and the relevance of compliance programs. Come hear about the latest enforcement initiatives and get your questions ready.

10h15 – 11h30 ANTITRUST ISSUES IN LICENSING AND DISTRIBUTION

Licensing of intellectual property, the use of standard essential patents and online distribution are reshaping many consumer industries. Standard setting creates winners and losers and may quash competition at the same time as it promotes innovation. Restrictions on online distribution including bans on internet sales, pricing restrictions and “best pricing” commitments also create competitive issues upon which regulators are focused. Our panel will examine these issues and areas of antitrust sensitivity for IP holders, licensees, producers and distributors

In the rapidly evolving digital economy, personal data is the new currency. Control and processing of large amounts of consumer data can be a source of market power. Privacy protections can affect competition and consumer choices. What are the responsibilities of data custodians and rights of their customers? This panel will provide a dynamic discussion on the interplay of privacy, competition, and consumer protection laws and policies in the digital economy.

14h15 – 15h30 COMPETITOR COLLABORATIONS, MINORITY ACQUISITIONS AND ASSOCIATIVE AGREEMENTS

Minority interest acquisitions and competitor collaborations increasingly attract antitrust scrutiny worldwide, while the process, timing and standards for assessing these transactions varies across countries. CADE has recently clarified that exclusive distribution agreements may need to be notified for merger clearance and acquisitions of interests as low as 5% may trigger merger review. Other jurisdictions also are focusing on the competitive implications of these transactions and how they should be reviewed. Our panel will explore recent international developments and agency guidance, and discuss how best to identify and minimize risks in minority acquisitions and competitor/associative agreements.
