Propriété intellectuelle et concurrence-Droit de la concurrence

Abstract : In this article, the author carries out a double examination of competition relations linked to the evolution of ongoing conflicts but also with regard to the initiatives envisaged in order to anticipate them. Through a retrospective analysis, the institutions highlight several trends: reaffirmation of the requirement of freedom of competition by the European Union Court of Justice on the one hand (Case C-179/16) and the Competition Authority on the other hand (Decision No 17-D-25 of 20 December 2017). Also, the requirement of fair competition could be reaffirmed in cases concerning the transfer of documents containing confidential information (Com., 13 September 2017) and concerning the copying of a competing product (Com. 25 September 2017). According to the author, several improvements can be considered, firstly concerning the functioning of competition in the pharmaceutical and medical biology sectors (in particular as regards the distribution chain of the medicinal product and price fixing). Regarding to the very common practice of mergers in the pharmaceutical sector, the role of the institutions is crucial, with the European Commission on the one hand and the Competition Authority on the other.
