One of them, written by the foremost Italian competition lawyer, Tullio Ascarelli, and presented by Ugo La Malfa and Riccardo Lombardi, was designed in surprising harmony with Franz Bohm's ideas. But nothing was done, even though parliamentary debates went on for more than two terms, and the theme was dropped in the early 1960s when a Commission of Parliamentary Inquiry into competition reached the conclusion that there were no worrying bottlenecks in Italy.

Respect for competition among distributors themselves was set up as an inviolable obligation. Eleven years later came the Court's verdict in the case of Sylvania, a TV manufacturer that had lost market (it had gone down to 1 per cent) and in order to climb back had successfully organized (going back up to 5 per cent) a franchising network, with the obligation on retailers in the network to sell only from premises agreed with Sylvania 4 United States v.
