During the past few years there has been extensive discussion regarding the extraterritorial application of antitrust laws and some attempts have been made to consider the matter in the context of public international law principles.' Notwithstanding objections raised by foreign governments to court orders and subpoenas directed to foreign corporations in relation to their activities abroad, some commentators still appear to consider that there are few, if any, limitations imposed by law upon such assertions of penal power. This position requires reexamination, and in undertaking a review it will be relevant to consider the nature and effect of new antitrust legislation in Europe.
