 The faculty will discuss: What are the limits when Section 5 is used to attack conduct that would fail to meet the accepted requirements for liability under Section 1 or Section 2 of the Sherman Act?; Will the FTC's new push in this area also involve trying to revive old theories like "facilitating practices" and "collective dominance“?; Can expanded Section 5 liability effectively be limited, as some have advocated, to practices that significantly reduce or distort the consumer choices available on the market?
