The Robinson-Patman Act has long been considered dormant in antitrust and price discrimination law.  However, recent court decisions, particularly in response to the increasing prominence of automobile manufacturer incentive programs, indicates that the Act is making a comeback.

To stay within the boundaries of the Act and avoid related antitrust liability, companies and their counsel should understand the Robinson-Patman requirements and prohibitions, as well as the defenses available to them.  In this webinar, Seyfarth attorneys will review recent noteworthy cases regarding the following topics:

  • Legal Elements of an Unlawful Price Discrimination Claim
  • Status of the Morton Salt Presumption
  • Key Statutory Defenses   
  • Application of the Act to Incentive Programs
  • Distinction Between Sections 2(a) and 2(d),(e)
  • Implication of the Woodman’s Food Market Decision
