Abstract

On 30 January 2020, the European Commission (‘the Commission’) announced its decision to fi ne several companies belonging to Comcast Corporation, including NBCUniversal LLC (‘Universal’), €14,327,000 for the implementation of territorial, consumer and online sales restrictions through their merchandising license agreements. Following an investigation into Universal’s licensing practices, the Commission found that it had participated in a single and continuous restriction of competition by object under Article 101 TFEU by restricting sales of film merchandise products across territories and consumer groups.
