Chapter Summary


This chapter, Remedial Powers of the Federal Trade Commission, covers two types of remedial action which the Commission can take. The chapter addresses cease and desist orders pursuant to Section 5(b) of the Federal Trade Commission Act ("FTC Act"). It also discusses equitable relief pursuant to Section 13(b) of the FTC Act, including temporary restraining orders as well as preliminary and permanent injunctions.

Antitrust Laws and Trade Regulation (Matthew Bender) provides essential expert legal analysis, underlying statutory and regulatory sources, and discussions of current developments in this field. Coverage includes types and analysis of antitrust violations; exemptions to the antitrust laws; treatment of specific industries such as telecommunications, financial institutions, transportation and health care; reviews of the antitrust laws of all 50 states; and systematic analyses of the competition laws of the European Union and its Member States.
