Abstract

In 2013 in the electronic communication and media field decisions taken by the National Competition Authority (Agcm) concern cases of abuse of dominant position in two markets. These are: 1) broadcasting exclusive rights (especially for football) and 2) the market of services concerning network access especially for Olo. All proceedings concerning media rights resulted in absence of infringement and the Agcm adopted dismissal decisions. The other case resulted in a fine for an abuse of dominant position of exclusionary nature for Telecom. In the postal sector there was a decision in order to prevent the incumbent from exploiting its market power in case of some services included in the universal service exempted from VAT; also this case resulted in a fine for Poste Italiane. Regarding the decisions in the transport field, Agcm qualified as anticompetitive an agreement concerning the passenger transport services by ferry-boat from and to Sardinia (I743). Moreover Antitrust closed only one preliminary investigation concerning mergers in passenger and vehicle maritime transport field on the routes Civitavecchia-Olbia, Genova-Olbia e Genova-Porto Torres (C11613B).
