Article 81 is dead! Long live Article 101!

Geoffrey Manne —  3 December 2009

The European Union has re-numbered its governing Articles following the entering into force of the Treaty of Lisbon.  So the former “Treaty Establishing the European Community” is now the “Treaty on the Functioning of the European Community.”  And the chapter on competition, former Articles 81 through 89, is now the new (and unchanged) Articles 101 through 109.  Thought you might like to know.
