About

"Broadly speaking, antitrust focuses on commercial markets to ensure that they remain competitive. It is not, however, 'regulation' in any familiar sense. It is a system of law enforcement, administered primarily through lawsuits akin to tort or criminal actions, that aims to punish those who exploit economic power of the kind that healthy markets are supposed to prevent." (From The Law of Antitrust: An Integrated Handbook.)
