Niehoryzontalne połączenia przedsiębiorstw w prawie konkurencji UE
Non-horizontal merges of entities in EU competition law
Merging companies may be in horizontal, vertical or conglomerate relations. The greatest threat to competition can cause a concentration of companies arising in horizontal relationships. But the effects of mergers, in which companies are in vertical or conglomerate relations are not so obvious. Often through merger of the manufacturer of a particular product, together with his distributor there will be reduction in the cost of distribution of products. New merged company can offer products on lower prices and thus increase competition. On the other hand such company can also limit competition. By foreclosing access to inputs merger will rise rivals costs. Such practice can create barriers to entry the market for potential competitors or even eliminate actual competitors.
Double nature of non-horizontal mergers requires adoption of appropriate legal mechanism which will investigate the effects of such mergers. Article aims to analyze how EU law treats non-horizontal mergers. In particular, it focuses on the analysis of the case law, the decisions of the European Commission and EU legislation concerning non-horizontal mergers.

Zwykły użytek oraz typowe właściwości w przypadku towarów konsumpcyjnych
Normal use and typical features against the background of consumer sale
The article addresses the issue of the so-called normal use and typical features of a good of a given type in the context of consumer sale. These two legal institutions – next to public statements on specific characteristics of a consumer good – are decisive in the case the parties do not make any, express or presumed, arrangements as to purposes and qualities that the good should be fit for or possess. That is, basing upon the aforementioned institutions, we determine whether, according to the law, a specific consumer good can, or cannot, be presumed to be in conformity with a contract. Moreover, unless there is a situation in which the buyer has known or, assessing reasonably, ought to have known of the lack of conformity of a good with a contract at the time the contract was concluded, the normal use and typical features of a good usually mark the minimal standards that goods delivered to the buyer has to meet lest they the seller should be liable.
Although the institutions such as normal use and typical features seem to overlap, which makes it very difficult to distinguish one from the other, due to their adoption for the sake of consumer sale, it is now beyond doubt that the instances of non-conformity with the contract encompasses defects consisting in a lower aesthetic value or higher than usual maintenance costs and other expenses one incurs when using a good.

Bankowa klauzula prawidłowego doręczenia w obrocie z konsumentami
Banking proper notification clause in trade with consumers
Proceedings for the recognition of standard contract clauses as abusive is part of consumer protection positions in business. It is carried out under the so-called, abstract control, which is expected to determine whether the use of a contract term is allowed to trade with consumers. One of these provisions, used in particular by the banks, concerns the delivery of consumer official letters and establish the date on which it was served. This clause applies to a situation in which the parties, and so the bank and the account holder (or such borrower), committed in the agreement to notify change of address for service, but if the consumer fails to comply with this obligation, which occurs without a change of address notice of the bank, the effect of this is to recognize that the letters delivered to the address specified in the contract shall be treated as delivered by the bank to the account holder.
Due to the existing Polish law theory of the service, it is extremely important to make declarations of intent by traders and the related effects, which may affect the legal situation of the consumer, because the use of such provisions of the consumer may be unable properly to the statement traders. Through the use of this type of provision is disturbed principle of equal rights of the contracting parties - for the benefit of trader. Indeed, if the consumer would, under the general rules, in a better position if a particular clause of post-determination was not, it should be assumed that it is abusive in nature and thus illegitimate in trade with consumers.
