The American Bar Association Section of Antitrust Law is pleased to
present the Price Discrimination Handbook. The circumstances under
which sellers can charge different prices to different customers, and
customers can accept those prices, continue to raise serious compliance
issues, and generate litigation under the federal Robinson-Patman Act,
various state statutes in the United States and, increasingly, under the
competition laws in jurisdictions located throughout the world. This
handbook is the Section’s first major publication dedicated solely to
price discrimination issues in over 20 years. It provides a detailed
review of federal and state price discrimination laws, as well as an
overview of price discrimination law in the European Union; selected EU
member countries; China; India; Brazil; and a number of other
jurisdictions throughout the globe.
The Section is grateful to project co-chairs Scott P. Perlman and Saul
P. Morgenstern, and their team of contributing authors and editors, for
undertaking this challenging task. The Section also thanks Robert L.
Hubbard, Chair of the Section’s Pricing Conduct Committee, for his
support and oversight of this project. We trust this book will serve as a
useful guide both for the antitrust enforcement community and for
attorneys in private practice who counsel and represent clients dealing
with price discrimination issues in the U.S. and internationally.
