23.10.2017 BE law

Our Competition law and TMT teams have the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on Innovative Partnerships, which will take place at our offices on 24 November 2017.

The digitizing economy pushes enterprises to create synergies and invest in innovative partnerships with competent and specialized service providers, allowing them to focus on their core business. Efficient partnerships require clear and sustainable contractual arrangements. Also, partnerships may involve the leveraging of significant market powers.

In this session, we will focus on key contractual terms inter alia on protecting your IP, know-how and other intangible assets, the rights to data, respective liabilities etc. We will also focus on arrangements that could be sensitive from a competition law perspective and workable solutions.

Our teams will share our best practices and discuss their insights with you. This seminar will be moderated by Hendrik Viaene, head of our Competition Law practice and by Erik Valgaeren, head of the TMT practice. Introductory presentations to the topic will be given by Delphine Gillet, senior associate in the Competition Law practice and Carolien Michielsen, junior associate in the TMT practice.

To ensure that the debate will be conducted most effectively, we inform you that attendance is limited to one person per company.

This expert meeting will take place at our offices in Brussels on the 24th of November 2017, from 12:00pm tot 2:00pm.

If you are interested in attending this seminar, please contact Sofie.VanYperzeele@stibbe.com.

First material judgment in Dutch damages proceedings in trucks infringement

Short Reads - In its judgment of 12 May 2021, the Amsterdam District Court ruled that it has not been established that it is definitively excluded that the trucks infringement led to damage to the claimants. However, this does not alter the fact that it must still be assessed for each claimant whether the threshold for referral to the damages assessment procedure has been met. For this to be the case, it must be plausible that a claimant may have suffered damage as a result of the unlawful actions of the truck manufacturers. The Amsterdam District Court has not yet ruled on this issue.

Highest Dutch Court: ACM has not proved dominance of Dutch railway operator NS

Short Reads - A high market share is not always proof of a dominant position. The Trade and Industry Appeals Tribunal (CBb) upheld the annulment of the ACM’s fine of nearly EUR 41 million on Dutch railway operator NS for alleged abuse of dominance. According to the CBb, NS did not abuse its dominant position as the ACM failed to prove beyond reasonable doubt that NS holds a dominant position on the market for the exercise of the right to exploit the main rail network concession.
