OROSZI Fanni: Possible theories of harm as regards Amazon’s business practices. Nr. 2021/6.
In the paper I take a look at what competition law infringements could Amazon possibly be found to be in breach of, and I also describe what we know so far of the European Commission’s two cases involving Amazon. Based on the public information available so far as regards the two cases of the European Commission (Amazon Marketplace and Amazon Buy Box cases), it seems that they are both centered around leveraging of market power by some kind of preferential treatment, be it towards Amazon itself or its FBA sellers, however, the rest is yet to come.
