combination in restraint of trade

A quick definition of combination in restraint of trade:

A combination in restraint of trade is when two or more people or companies agree to work together to raise prices, reduce the amount of goods or services available, or create a monopoly. This is not allowed by antitrust laws and is also called a combine.

A more thorough explanation:

A combination in restraint of trade is an agreement between two or more individuals or entities that is intended to increase prices, decrease output, or establish a monopoly. This type of agreement is also known as a "combine."

For example, if two competing companies agree to fix their prices at a certain level, this would be considered a combination in restraint of trade. Similarly, if several companies in the same industry agree to limit their production in order to keep prices high, this would also be a combination in restraint of trade.

These types of agreements are illegal under antitrust laws, which are designed to promote competition and prevent monopolies. By limiting competition, combinations in restraint of trade can harm consumers by driving up prices and reducing choices.

@georgiapeach88: I actually remember you from some of the first times I was on this site
Just out of curiosity: Do we think it's fair to say that the percentage of users of those site who continue to use it after their 1L starts, for those users who actually went or go to law school, is <1%?
@georgiapeach88: not sure if you're still there but im also curious bout why you transferred, especially since your application says you were eventually admitted to GULC off the waitlist?
