In 2004, the Supreme Court decided Verizon Communications v. Law Offices of Curtis V. Trinko. The case examined what types of monopolistic activities would violate antitrust laws. The Court addressed issues involving forced sharing, the risks and rewards of competition in a free market, and the role of governing regulations. The Trinko decision raises important questions and provides insightful consideration for examining antitrust issues.
