These comments look at the subject from a legal viewpoint, in contrast to the Essay by Professor Dr. Günter Knieps, which uses an economic approach. His Essay raises several issues concerning access: (1) who should be obliged to give it; (2) to whom; (3) in what circumstances; and (4) on what terms? In practice, the precise answers will depend on whether European Community (“Community” or “EC”) competition law, national competition law, or national telecommunications law based on Community directives, are being applied. As far as possible, the same answer should be given in all cases.
