The purpose of this thesis is through combined legal and economic method to analyze on how companies can engage in effective cooperation, while seeking to minimize the risk that there may be abuse of a dominant market position. This thesis is theoretical, and therefore builds exclusively on literature studies. The issues discussed targets thus both legal and economic theorists. A pure structural separation of the thesis is thus not possible as both are essential for the understanding of the other. Chapter 1 gives a presentation on the topic, sets the premises and grazing of the dissertation, the basic methods and theories are put forward. Chapter 2 provides a review of current regulations, rationale, and how legislators and other trends in society move and thereby affect the legal-political aspect of the regulation. This combined with a qualitative analysis of the legal issues form the background for the saving of the presented problem statement. Chapter 3 analyzes the strategic cooperation from an economic perspective undergoing various economic theories in order to question efficient regulation, to identify value creation in society. In chapter 4, the analysis of the legal and economic results leads to the conclusion of efficient regulation and how the future may view regulation in a new perspective that by providing an economic incentive structure can create efficient regulation and thereby optimize value creation.
