Key Antitrust Issues - Monopoly

Does domination of an industry or a market by one or a few large corporations necessarily violate antitrust laws?

Should the biggest firms in each industry be broken up?

The courts have found that monopoly per se is not illegal

If a company dominates the market because it offers a superior product or service, has invented something unique, or even because it is just lucky, that is not against the law

If, however, a firm uses its market dominance to restrain commerce, compete unfairly, or hurt consumers, then it may be found guilty of violating antitrust laws
