English term or phrase:tying product
the United States Supreme Corut last week unanimously overturned the presumption that a seller has market power in the context of a tying arrangement solely because a tying product is protected by an intellectual property right.
Explanation: Tying is the practice of making the sale of one good (the tying good) to the de facto or de jure customer conditional on the purchase of a second distinctive good (the tied good). A classic example of de facto tying is the selling of razors at a loss and making the profit on the blades. Cell phones and printers sold at below cost, the profit to be made on the subsequent minutes or printer cartridges, are also common.
