The resale price maintenance on books: limiting competition in order to protect culture?

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: books, resale price maintenance, competition, protection of the culture.

Taking the cue from the events of the Law n. 128/2011, limiting the discounts on books cover price, which was passed by broad consensus and soon implicitly repealed amid the general indifference, the paper proposes a thorough analysis of the model of intervention to which the law was inspired and of the alternative approaches that may be found in different European legal systems. The investigation aims, in particular, to assess the merits of the assumptions which form the basis of the defense of the Rpm in the books market.
