Summary " ... discusses the antitrust analysis applied to price discrimination, brokerage payments, and discriminatory promotional payments and services, involving both sellers and buyers, under the Robinson-Patman Act, the principal federal antitrust statute governing such practices. Since the Robinson-Patman Act is the most generally applicable statute addressing discriminatory practices in the distribution of commodities, and decisions under that federal statute usually are used for guidance in interpreting other federal and state laws dealing with that subject matter, this portfolio deals almost entirely with Federal Trade Commission and judicial interpretations of the Robinson-Patman Act, and includes counseling guidelines based upon those interpretations."
