In today’s economy, there are a wide number of powerful companies who in all appearances control massive segments of different markets. Using the Internet, identify one (1) example of a large company that has (or might be) engaged in anti-competitive behavior in the last year. Next, suggest three (3) ways that this behavior could be viewed as either a horizontal or vertical restraint of trade. Be sure to define these terms and explain them and provide support for your response.
