This presentation uses two recent antitrust matters (the various Intel investigations and cases; ZF Meritor v. Eaton) to describe the circumstances in which an incumbent monopolist can use loyalty discounts with buyers to exclude a rival. In addition to noting the circumstances where loyalty discounts can be used to predate a rival, the presentation also describes two economic theories of exclusion that do not rely on below-cost pricing by the incumbent.
