PROTECTING COMPETITION? * This was, in short, an outright return to the principles of the beginning of the century, to an a priori preference for the rights of the smaller, certainly more consistent with the original objectives of the Clayton Act than, in many cases, with the economic analysis, however widely accepted, deriving from Harvard. According to some, the height of the renewed wave of severe antitrust, after which the wave began to subside along with the traditional fears of concentrations, was the Kellogg case, in which the Federal Trade Commission sought to attack the high level of concentration in the ready to eat cereals market, attributing to it a price level that it claimed was higher than costs and asking for the dismantling of the biggest companies.
But as far as the Supreme Court is concerned, it is reasonable to consider that the divergence within it was still the same as with the Sharp case. According to the more moderate opinion, the majority in this case, Kodak's efficiency arguments would have to have been proven; according to the more extreme TODAYS SUBTLE WEAPONS 31 view, in this case the minority, efficiency was to be taken as given. But both accepted that conduct like Kodak's could be legitimate, whereas according to the precedent of Schwinn, which can thus be seen abandoned once more, it would have been invalid per se.
The provisions of the Sherman Act (and the laws that followed it) led to defining as restrictive those agreements that prove to be illegitimate, whether because they are "per se" restrictive, or because they are unreasonable and hence, today, devoid of an efficiency justification. That means that when there is a justification, the agreement is not regarded as restrictive (as occurred in common law, though on the basis of different criteria of reasonableness). Article 85(1) of the Treaty forbids all agreements, including concerted practices, which have "as their object or effect" the restriction of competition within the Common Market; it indicates in particular some types of prohibited agreements, from price-fixing to sharing of markets, discriminatory conditions, and control of access.
