Section I of this Note analyzes the cases in which the Commission and the Court of Justice have implied a doctrine of economic unity and argues that this economic unity exemption to the prohibitions of article 85 may indeed be a limited one. Section II sets forth the theoretical and practical difficulties that such a limited economic unity doctrine entails. Finally, section III presents an alternative analysis for determining when article 85 of the Treaty of Rome sould apply to practices between related firms.
