Horizontal Territorial Agreement

Horizontal customer allocation is an agreement between competitors at the same level of distribution of a product or service, which serves designated customers or categories of customers and which does not attempt to compete with the activities of customers assigned to a competitor or to restrict the manner in which they will compete. Identification of pricing activities: Price cartels generally include any agreement between competitors aimed at manipulating prices, price levels or conditions of sale (e.g. (B interest rate for consumer credit) for goods or services. As a general rule, price fixing involves an agreement between two or more competing producers of a given product or competing suppliers of a given service in a defined geographical area, to increase, establish or maintain the prices of their goods or services. It can take place either at wholesale or retail level and, although it does not need to involve all competitors in a given market, most competitors are generally present on the relevant market. See `Horizontal guidelines`: guidelines on the applicability of Article 101 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union to horizontal cooperation agreements (OJ L 101, 10.1.2001, p. 1). OJ C 11, 14.1.2011, pp. 1-72). Under Sherman Act§ 1, a territorial agreement that assigns geographic areas between competitors may constitute a horizontal restriction on trade. In a horizontal agreement, competing undertakings enter into an agreement in order not to compete or to infringe another competitor within an exclusive geographical area.

The non-competition agreement is generally a restriction of competition that has no pro-competitive justification. As such, it is in itself illegal under the Sherman Act. In its most common form, pricing is an agreement to increase the price of a product or service on or around a certain amount, for example.B. all widget manufacturers agree to a 5 percent price increase from June 1. Other manifestations of the price deal are as follows: Suppose four ice cream makers once decided that their efforts to compete in every corner of the city were costly and destructive. Why not just get a good deal: everyone will sell ice cream to retail businesses in a single quadrant of the city. This is not a price agreement; Anyone can be free at any price sale. But it is a restriction of trade, because by dividing up the territory where everyone is allowed to sell, they make it impossible for grocery stores to make a choice between the four producers. The point becomes obvious when the same type of deal is reached at the national level: Suppose Ford and Toyota agreed that Ford would not sell its cars in New York and Toyota would not sell Toyota in California…

Species on the Move

An International Conference Series

The conference brings together scientists and natural resource managers working in the disciplines of global change, biogeography and evolution, and relevant in contexts of natural resource management, biodiversity management and conservation, and theoretical ecology.


Species responses to climate change is a rapidly evolving research field, however, much of our progress is being made in independent research areas: e.g. understanding the process vs responding to the implications, terrestrial vs marine ecosystems, global meta-analyses vs in depth species-specific approaches. This interdisciplinary conference develops connections between these parallel streams, and across temporal and spatial scales.
