Italian term or phrase: ius primae noctis
... finiremo per avere un mercato fissa sgombro da equivoci e da "ius primae noctis" dovuti a detentori di posizioni dominanti.
The term is Latin, but I thought it would be clearer if I gave the entire sentence in Italian. I understand what the term means, but not in this context. Thanks!

feudal prerogative
Explanation:
I was sending a suggestion, then I lost it. Please excuse me if it appears twice. I was saying that the Latin was used not literally but to suggest a feudal practice which is abhorred by most people now. Prerogative as in exclusive privilege, right exercised without question; this is also suggested by the apposition "detentori di posizioni dominanti".
