Competition Law in Leisure Markets

Competition Law Scholars Forum

Interested in Sports or Entertainment? Fancy a trip to Madrid in the Autumn? Well the Competition Law Scholars Forum may have an event which is of interest!

The Competition Law Scholars Forum (CLaSF) will be running a workshop on 26th September 2014. The subject of the workshop will be the broad theme of Competition in Leisure Markets. We invite abstract paper proposals from researchers, scholars, practitioners and policy-makers in relation to any issue within this broad theme. We welcome theoretical, economics-driven, practice-based or policy focused papers, and we are interested in receiving abstracts for papers which may be focused on perspectives or experience at national, regional (eg EU), or international levels, or a combination.
Being a major tourist and holiday destination, Spain is described by many as a “leisure paradise”, and seeking to assess the implications competition law may have in different consumer leisure and recreational markets, CLaSF is devoting its XXIII event held this September in Madrid to this very broad topic.
In particular, suggestions are invited in relation to the following matters:

Competition law and tourism: package holidays, food (pubs, restaurants), hotels, gambling, transportation.

Competition disputes in the sport sector: media rights and ticket sales arrangements and structural/regulatory features of sports (including state aid cases).

Entertainment, Technology and Media-related competition cases: television broadcasting, content markets (music, motion pictures).

Digital Leisure: software and computing, video and online gaming, online gambling

Creative and cultural industries and competition Law: IP collective management & licensing.


Please submit your abstract by 2nd June 2014.

In the first instance an abstract is required of approximately 500-1,000 words, a draft paper (and PPT presentation) will also be required a week prior to the workshop.
