Anti-competitive competition

In a classic demonstration of the lack of fidelity to language seemingly inherent in government bureaucracies, the European Commission says it wants to increase market competition by, er, putting limits on who can compete.

The European Commission is putting pressure on the English Premier League to change the way it sells televised football rights, or face possible antitrust action for breaking EU competition law.
