The Commission Guidance on Exclusionary Abuses: Born Under a Bad Sign?

Abstract

A due anni e mezzo dalla loro adozione, la funzione degli Orientamentisugli abusi di posizione dominante a carattere escludente è ancora poco chiara, anche a causa dell'atteggiamento della Commissione. La dichiarata irrilevanza degli Orientamenti dal punto di vista legale potrebbe persino pregiudicare l'uniforme applicazione dell'art. 102 TFUE. Di certo, l'auspicata modernizzazione dell'art. 102 TFUE è ancora lontana, come dimostrano le più recenti pronunce delle Corti europee, fedeli al tradizionale approccio formalistico che consente di sanzionare le imprese dominanti senza la necessità di dimostrare - sulla base di un'analisi economica appropriata - che le loro condotte possano concretamente danneggiare la concorrenza e i consumatori. Per fornire alle imprese, alle autorità della concorrenza e ai giudici nazionali un chiaro quadro di riferimento nella valutazione delle forme più comuni di condotte escludenti secondo solidi principi di analisi economica, la Commissione dovrebbe decisioni più coerenti con gli Orientamenti, in modo da stimolare una riflessione delle Corti comunitarie e, auspicabilmente, far evolvere la giurisprudenza.
