The latest Competition and Consumer Law Journal is out (Vol 17(1)) containing some interesting items on current developments in the law, including:

  • In hope of convergence — A regional perspective on competition law (Chief Justice R S French)
  • Signalling, collusion and s 45 of the Trade Practices Act (Rhonda L Smith, Arlen Duke and David K Round)
  • The contract requirement for the joint venture exceptions under ss 44ZZRO and 44ZZRP of the Trade Practices Act (Brent Fisse)
  • Cartel damages and the passing on defence: A comparative analysis (Graeme Edgerton)

For those interested in everything TPA related, there’s also an interesting article on the scope of s 51A (representations about the future) in the context of the current review of Australian Consumer Law.

  • The 2009 review of Australian consumer law — An opportunity to reconsider and clarify the rationale and scope of s 51A of the Trade Practices Act (Aviva Freilich and Eileen Webb)
