Module 3: Substantive Provisions of Indian Competition Act

Unit 1: Anticompetitive Agreements
The first unit details the issue of anti-competitive agreements, Horizontal and Vertical types of anti-competitive agreements, effect of these agreements on competition and examples and case laws related to the different types of anti-competition agreements. The unit will also discuss standards of proof and tests for analysing the anticompetitive effects of anti-competitive agreements.

Unit 2: Abuse of Dominance
The second unit will help participants understand the provisions related to abuse of dominance in India. The unit holds a detailed discussion on meaning of ‘Dominant Position’, factors that are considered for determining ‘Dominance’ and what constitutes ‘Abuse of Dominance’. The discussions in the unit will also include the different forms of abuses by a dominant enterprise with related examples and case laws.

Unit 3: Regulation of Combinations

Provisions of the Competition Act 2002 with respect to determining ‘appreciable adverse effect on competition’ and the procedure for regulatory approvals from CCI are discussed in detail.

Module 4: Intellectual Property and New Age Markets
This module builds an understanding of the New Age Markets, Big Data, Innovation, Intellectual Property, and Compulsory Licensing. In this era of digital economy, it is essential to understand the competition concerns arising in this industry.

Unit 1: Intellectual Property and Competition Law Interface
The first unit discusses the issues with respect to the relationship between Competition Policy and IPRs, the treatment of IPRs under the Competition Law regimes. Indian Competition Law, namely, Competition Act, 2002 is analysed as to how it treats anti-competitive restraints and abuses of dominance arising out of exercise of IPRs.

Unit 2: Disruptive Technology and Competition Law
The second unit deals with Digital Regime, Big Data and Competition. This subject is surfacing in a big way (though recently in India) and the material available is not widespread but sparse, placing a constraint for this narrative to be comprehensive. This unit builds a narrative using the available research and some case laws covering a reasonable tapestry of the subject.

Unit 3: Compulsory Licensing and Parallel Imports
The third unit is germane to both Unit 1 and Unit 2. Compulsory Licensing (CL) is an integral part of IPR Laws in most jurisdictions. It impacts Competition in the market. Hence its relevance to the two aforesaid units. The subject is vast but this unit traverses the same very briefly to cover the Interface aspect.
