Vinge has advised Bink AB, the Bonnier Group’s sales undertaking for web-based media, in connection with the acquisition of Tailsweep AB. Since its formation in 2007, Tailsweep has managed to establish itself as Sweden’s largest advertising network in blogs and social media. The acquisition has allowed Blink to strengthen its product range within several market segments.

Vinge’s team consisted of partner Malin Leffler together with, among others, associates Jonas Bergström, Malin Buch and Fredrik Gustafsson. Partner Eva Fredrikson and associate Daniel Järmen provided IP and IT advice in the transaction.

New statute prohibits unfair terms and conditions and practices in conjunction with the purchase of agricultural and food products

The so-called UTP Act prohibits buyers from using certain terms and conditions and practices against suppliers of agricultural and food products. The Swedish Competition Authority exercises supervision and can, among other things, carry out unannounced inspections and order individual to attend formal interviews. In conjunction with violations, sanctions such as injunctions subject to a default fine or a sanction fee of up to one per cent of the buyer’s annual turnover can be imposed. The UTP Act will enter into force on 1 November 2021 and will also be applicable to contracts which are entered into prior to this date.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
