Tying Law and Legal Definition

Tying is defined as “selling one good (the tying product) on the condition that the buyer also purchase another, separate good (the tied product). The antitrust concern over tying arrangements is limited to those situations in which the seller can exploit its power in the market for the tying product to force buyers to purchase the tied product when they otherwise would not.” Black Box Corp. v. Avaya, Inc., 2009 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82069 (D.N.J. Sept. 8, 2009)
