Summary/Abstract: Several elements can be considered that lead to configuring the specificity of abuse of a dominant position in a competitive context. The Court of Justice has defined the dominant position referred to in art. 82 (ex 86) EC as a "position of economic power in which there is an undertaking which enables it to hinder effective competition in order to be maintained in a relevant market in order to give it the power to behave independently of its competitors, its customers and, ultimately, consumers".
