The following is a brief overview of the field.

EU law is broken up into two separate areas; primary legislation and secondary legislation. Primary legislation is the collection of treaties upon which EU action is based and the secondary legislation comes from the objectives and principles contained within these treaties. Antitrust law within the EU is one of biggest areas of tort law in the EU.

What is ‘antitrust' law?

Antitrust law is also known as competition law and it is one of the most globally important methods of regulating fair competition between businesses. The concept was previously recognised within the EU as ‘trade practices' and each description is directly illustrative of what they represent.

Importantly, EU jurisdiction is centred around the ‘rule of law'. This is in the interests of fairness between the countries because it means that all treaties in place must have been approved by all EU member countries – both in a democratic and voluntary sense. And the EU is not afraid to target key internet players in the name of the law.

The antitrust and EU law sphere is very wide-ranging. As non-jurisdiction specific search engines become more and more versatile and important, so does the applicability of antitrust law restrictions.
