Grégory Marson analyses for the journal Concurrences No. 1-2024 the declaration of the European Union Court of Justice, which holds that Article 106-1 of the TFEU, read in conjunction with Article 102, precludes national legislation which grants the holder of an exclusive exploitation right the possibility of obtaining, without a call for competition, the extension of its exploitation right for successive periods of five years, where such legislation leads that holder, by the mere exercise of the preferential rights conferred on it, to exploit its dominant position abusively in a substantial part of the internal market or where those rights are liable to create a situation in which that holder is induced to commit such abuses.
