Did you miss the Swedish Competition Authority’s recent report on Sport and Competition Law?

The author of the report, Docent Johan Lindholm at the Department of Law at Umeå University, emphasises among other things that the operators who carry on commercial activities should carefully consider whether the model that they use complies with the demands that arise from the provisions governing competition. The report offers an insight into operators and exploitation models, with the focus on that part of the commercial exploitation that is called “sports marketing”. The author also offers 12 concrete recommendations that different operators or stakeholders should observe.
