John Ratliff and his colleagues set out the second part of their annual review of major events in EU Competition law in 2020–2021, dealing with European Court judgments on third party interests in art.9 commitment decisions (Groupe Canal+); and whether the essential facilities doctrine applies to decisions affecting access in regulated sectors (Baltic Rail, Slovak Telekom).
