Italian term or phrase: concorrenza nel merito
Il concetto di abuso come riflesso nella giurisprudenza si caratterizza come il comportamento di un'impresa la quale ricorra a metodi diversi da quelli che caratterizzano la normale concorrenza tra prodotti o servizi, comportamento che abbia l'effetto di impedire il mantenimento del grado di concorrenza ancora esistente sul mercato, ovvero lo sviluppo di tale concorrenza (indipendentemente dall'obiettivo prefissatosi o dal fatto che l'impresa dominante abbia effettivamente raggiunto un vantaggio economico) e che non sia obiettivamente giustificato
In tale valutazione, è necessario innanzitutto definire se la pratica in questione è il risultato di una concorrenza nel merito. Quando il comportamento in oggetto permette all'impresa dominante una riduzione nei costi ovvero un aumento nella sua efficienza, non può essere considerato altro se non un comportamento concorrenziale.

English translation:competition on the merits
Explanation:
"For several decades courts drew the line between efficient and inefficient exclusion by asking whether the conduct under scrutiny was "competition on the merits". Courts equated such competition on the merits with unilateral conduct such as product improvement, the realization of economies of scale, innovation, and the like. Such conduct was lawful per se, since it constituted the normal operation of economic forces that a free economy should encourage." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monopolization

Quite so. And this confirms that nel merito is better translated "on the merits" than "on merit," which I was wondering.

  -> Thanks. I knew it's a term of art in law but was concerned someone might object that it's plural in the target phrase or, e.g., in human resources.
