Head note

Analysis of the judgement of the European Court of Justice of 23 April 2009, which holds that Directive 2005/29/EC must be interpreted as precluding national legislation which, with certain exceptions, and without taking into account the specific circumstances, imposes a general prohibition of combined offers made by a vendor to a consumer.
