Policy Recommendation on the Competition Law Issues of the Re-use of Public Sector Information (PSI)

Vol.6,No.3(2012)

Abstract
Based on a description of the structure and competitive relationships that characterize PSI markets, and in the light of some case studies and legal decisions from sev - eral EU Member States, this document addresses what legal rules a new Directive, amending Directive 2003/98/CE on the re-use of Public Sector Information, could introduce in order to both discourage anticompetitive business practices and make them easier to be detected and proved.
