The 20/04/2010, the European Commission is due to update the rules providing a 'safe harbour' for agreements between manufacturers and distributors - and other forms of so-called vertical agreements. The existing Vertical Restraints Block Exemption Regulation (VRBER) and accompanying Guidelines expire at the end of May 2010. They are 10 years old. The novelties in the new texts are that they clarify the rules applicable to vertical agreements concerning on-line sales, recognising the development in the last decade of the Internet as a force for cross-border commerce and, second, that they extend the market share threshold to buyers, on top of a manufacturer's threshold, above which the exemption does not apply. These updates of the rules reflect market dynamics, competition enforcement and economic research. To illustrate this event, the Audiovisual Service of the EC has produced this video stockshots, which contains the following images of: - young woman purchasing perfume on the Sephora website; - young woman purchasing perfume at the perfume department in a store in Brussels; - young woman researching photo cameras and video cameras on the Pixmania and Amazon websites; - Amazon warehouse, Leipzig, Germany; - young woman purchasing Nike shoes on the Nike website; - and young man purchasing a Nike t-shirt in a store, Brussels.
