The actions of a business that has market power can have serious effects on the operation of a market. An undertaking in a dominant position may use its market power in several ways, the most common being exploiting consumers by artificial scarcity and increasing prices. Moreover, there may be diverse interpretation as to the nature of an undertaking while considering market power abuse cases for the purposes of European Union (EU) Competition law. It is significant to consider the status of consumers in a market to see if dominant entities are abusing their powers and therefore test the level of commercialization.</p><p>Northern University Journal of Law Vol.IV 2013; p.27-46</p> Afroza Bilkis, Supravat Halder ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 14 Dec 2015 01:14:18 +0000 The Doctrine of Capital Maintenance and its Statutory Developments: An Analysis <p>This article emphasizes on the implication of the doctrine of capital maintenance which means the capital of a company needs to be kept intact for there is a contribution of the creditors and retaining the capital is normally expected to guarantee repayment to the creditors.
