The Danish Competition Council has decided that companies illegally have participated in sharing of markets and customers

The Danish Competition Council have decided that two Danish companies active on the market for storage management, i.e. data capture and barcode scanners, have violated the Danish Competition Act section 6, which prohibits i.a. collusion between competing companies, when participating in sharing of markets and customers.

The Danish companies had agreed to divide customers between them and to avoid any direct or indirect contact to each other’s customers for a period of more than three years.
Market sharing agreements are presumed to have a harmful effect on range of products and services as well as prices.
