Let's say four different agencies dominate the market and the agencies get together and agree to charge their clients 7% commission on all sales. This is considered price fixing because brokers must independently set their prices. You will find that there is a typical commission in your market. Perhaps it is standard that most sellers are charged 6% because it's the going rate. That is not considered price fixing because it's regulated by the market. The difference is that in the first example, the brokerages made an agreement (either verbally or in writing) that they would all charge the same amount. The agreement is illegal. Each agency must determine their own prices and not work with other agencies to create a standard commission rate.

An Overview of Antitrust Law By William Markham Markham

Just Now

1. Broadly speaking, antitrust laws seek to promote competitive markets. When sellers must compete against one another, customers usually benefit. The same is true of buyers that must compete to procure inputs, such as supplies and labor. Modern antitrust law is mostly concerned only with certain cardinal offenses against competition — the so-called per seviolations, such as price-fixing and market allocation by direct competitors — as well as anticompetitive practices used by one or more firms to restrain or monopolize an entire line of commerce. Congress and the courts seem poised, however, to revive a more expansive view of antitrust law to respond to modern realities in our markets. The essential theory of antitrust is that heightened competition keeps companies on their best behavior and best promotes the country’s broader prosperity. Sellers that must compete with one another to win customers are more likely to offer responsive services, improved products, customer-pleasing innov...

Why Antitrust Laws Matter? By William Markham, 2006)

Just Now

1. The antitrust laws are supposed to promote and protect competition, or, if you will, competitive processes in distinct “lines of commerce” or “relevant markets.” This alone is their proper purpose. They are not intended to punish big companies merely on account of their size or because of their commercial success. Most importantly, the antitrust laws have never been anti-market or anti-business in their underlying conception or in their implementation. On the contrary, theantitrust lawsare intended to promote market economics and healthy competition in every market, while checking the abuses that sometimes arise in different markets. The idea behind these laws is that in every market there should be robust competition: If in each market there are many sellers busily competing against one another to sell a particular kind of product or service to paying customers, no seller will be able to take unfair advantage of the buyers, but rather each seller will be obliged to offer its goods...
