Federal Antitrust Laws, Violations & Penalties
Three main federal antitrust laws exist in an effort to keep competition
in the United States fair and to prevent monopolies. The Sherman Act of
1890, the Federal Trade Commission Act of 1914 and the Clayton Act of
1914 all contain federal antitrust laws which govern antitrust violations
in the U.S. The Sherman Act, for example, is aimed at “…preserving
free and unfettered competition as the rule of trade.” This is considered
important in building and maintaining a thriving economy.
Actions designed and carried out with the intention of restraining trade,
creating a monopoly or preventing fair competition are all actions which
may be considered antitrust violations. Under the Sherman Act, an individual
convicted of an antitrust violation may be sentenced to paying fines of
up to $1 million, and a business may face fines of up to $100 million,
along with a prison sentence of up to 10 years.
