Some of the antitrust offenses a company might commit affect you as a consumer or small business owner. These violations include:
Price-fixing: Competitors that agree to raise, lower or stabilize their prices are committing an antitrust offense. These companies are taking advantage of consumers and might be trying to drive a competitor out of the industry.
Bid-rigging: When competitors work together to provide bids that affect the outcome of a purchase transaction, they are violating the laws for antitrust. They may use identical bids or they may take turns offering the lowest discount to win a purchasing contract.
Competitor agreements: If a competitor refuses to sell from you or buy from a supplier, it could be an antitrust offense. These actions need to be stopped because they are illegal and affect the fair-trade marketplace.
Tying: Forcing a buyer to purchase a product they don’t want in order to receive what they do is a form of antitrust violation. This can occur to consumers as well as a businesses looking to secure materials for their company.
Monopolies: Business monopolies can happen when a business makes it difficult for another company to compete with it. The business has a hold on the market and makes healthy competition impossible.
