Unlawful Monopolization Law and Legal Definition

Unlawful monopolization includes two elements: (1) the possession of monopoly power in the relevant market; and (2) the willful acquisition or maintenance of that power as distinguished from normal growth as a consequence of a superior product, business accumen, or historic accident.” Cohen v. Primerica Corp., 709 F. Supp. 63, 65 (E.D.N.Y. 1989)
