  • The European Court of Justice has issued a judgment on restrictions on granting discounts imposed by the administrator of a computer booking system used by a number of travel agents. The ECJ considered that, where the administrator sends the travel agents a message informing them that the discounts on products sold through the booking system have been capped, the travel agents may be presumed to have participated in a concerted practice within the meaning of Article 101, if they are aware of that message. That presumption can be rebutted if the travel agent can show it has publicly distanced itself from that practice, reported it to the competition authorities or can provide other rebuttal evidence, such as evidence of charging discounts above the cap. Click here.
