  • the EU electronic communications framework;
  • case law covering issues of refusal to supply and the essential facilities doctrine;
  • application of Article 82 EC to bottlenecks;
  • specific types of an undertakings unilateral behaviour that may often occupy NRAs and competition authorities in the context of their ex post competition law investigations under Article 82 EC;
  • strategic alliances and mergers in the move toward multimedia;
  • access to premium content and the emergence of new media;
  • the scope of content regulation in the online environment; and
