Matthew Hall co-hosted the December
23 episode of the Our Curious Amalgam
podcast on the topic "How Far Can I Go? EU Competition Law and Distribution."

law enforcement against vertical agreements. Distribution agreements have in

also at risk. The focus is on ensuring that manufacturers and licensors do not
unreasonably ban or restrict online selling and is replicated at national level
in the EU.
