The guidelines were intended to update the definitions of active and passive sales in light of the growth of e-commerce. Internet use is generally considered a passive sale. Specifically, policies provide that the use of a website is considered a passive sale as long as it is not directed towards specific customers. B, for example, by using online banner ads and unwanted emails to customers. These practices are considered an active sale.13 This distinction is less relevant in the context of selective distribution systems, since active and passive sales to end customers (and other authorized distributors) must be authorized. In 2011, open dealer contracts will be signed between N (concession dealers) and Peugeot Automobiles (Grantor) for the distribution and thinking of Peugeot vehicles from the Paris sites (17), Asniéres, Chambly and Saint-Brie. They presented incentive bonuses (compared to the sentence (…) A list of the main provisions that are generally, but not always, contained in the distribution agreements: Eleven Sports, a British sports television provider, signed a long-term distribution agreement last year with the four TV operators in Portugal. The pioneering agreements meant that Eleven Sports achieved 100% distribution of pay-TV in Portugal. There was therefore no distribution between suppliers, as in the UK, with Sky, BT, ESPN, BBC, ITV, Eurosport and Amazon.

Eleven Sports is the single point of contact for your sports TV needs in Portugal. Since 1 May 2004, the parties must draw their own conclusions on the compatibility of their trade agreements with EU competition law. Although many selective distribution agreements are considered to be free of competition, there are strict conditions that must be met and the conditions of these agreements must be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. In addition, the application of the application at national level (Member States) (under Article 101 and/or national equivalents) has been higher in many cases. For example, regulatory activity related to distribution is relatively high in France and Germany. In addition, many national competition law procedures involve vertical agreements (including selective distribution agreements). In addition, in recent years, emphasis has been placed on the role of the internet as an effective means of distribution and regulators have actively monitored cases where providers have tried to limit the role of the internet in distribution. Some selective distribution agreements are not entirely within the purview of competition law. The case law has confirmed that the prohibition of anti-competitive agreements under Article 101, paragraph 1, will generally not apply to a selective distribution system if four conditions are met:2 The European Court of Justice ruled in the Pierre Fabre case16 that a clause in a selective distribution agreement de facto prohibiting distributors from selling their products on the internet constitutes a “restriction”. Although the contract does not explicitly prohibit internet sales, it provides that the sale is done exclusively from a physical space where a qualified pharmacist was present.
