Subject: Quick Business Question
Hi Uncle Dave, How are you?! I had a quick question that maybe you can answer.
Historically, has there ever been a case where a company has attempted to avoid antitrust/monopoly laws by dividing into two companies, which still sell (essentially) the same product and create the illusion of competing against one another (i.e. Coke vs. Pepsi or Miller Lite vs. Bud Lite)? If so, is there a technical term for that loophole scenario? I'm looking for a title for an art project I'm currently working on where I overlay two corporate logos of companies that make me suspicious directly over one another (see example picture).
Anyways, any info you have would be much appreciated. Thanks, and hope to see you soon!
While companies do split for many reasons, it would be tough to get that type of deal past the Department of Justice...they test every company reorganization for Competitive effect.
Title your art work "What If ..." !

Yes, but isn't Budweiser "above the law"? Haha, just kidding. Thanks for the info :)
