Albrecht v. Herald Company
by the Supreme Court of the United States
Albrecht v. Herald Co., 390 U.S. 145 (1968), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court, which held that wholesalers could not require franchisees and retailers of their products to sell items at a certain price; advertisements regarding sales therefore always included the language "Available at participating retailers only." This broad rule was narrowed in 1997 by State Oil Co. v. Khan, which held that, under certain circumstances, such price setting was not anti-competitive and not a violation of Antitrust law. — Excerpted from Albrecht v.
