Hammarskiöld represented subsidiary of Jubii Europe (previously Lycos Europe) in competition case

The Stockholm District Court has issued its judgment in the case between Yarps Network Services AB (a subsidiary of Jubii Europe N.V., previously Lycos Europe) and TeliaSonera. The case concerned Yarps’ claim for damages due to TeliaSonera’s abuse of dominance in the Swedish broadband market. Jubii Europe, trading under the names of Spray Network and Tiscali, was previously a competitor of TeliaSonera in the Swedish Internet access market.

The Stockholm District Court found in its judgment that TeliaSonera had abused its dominant position and awarded damage in the amount of SEK 65 million plus interest until the day of payment (in total approximately SEK 127 million including interest, as per today).
