Abstract [en]

Case C-637/17, Cogeco Communications v Sport TV Portugal, EU:C:2019:263, concerned compensation for harm incurred by reason of alleged abuse of a dominant position within the meaning of Article 102 TFEU. This case is of particular interest since it is the first case on private enforcement of EU competition law since the adoption of the new private enforcement regime, including Directive 2014/104 on actions for damages for infringements of competition law. However, the Court of Justice ruled in this case that the rules of the new directive could not apply in the main proceedings. The findings of the Court were consequently based on Article 102 TFEU and the principle of effectiveness rather than on the rules of the directive. Even though Cogeco may therefore in some respects be less relevant under the new regime, it is predicted that in other respects Cogeco should be an important precedent.
