In particular, we have not questioned the basic premise that the competitive relationship – “the marketplace” – determines the degree of likeness. Hence, this is not an argument against the conceptual basis of the likeness definition, but about the possibility to use for instance standard econometrics to assess the competitive relationship. 22 henrik horn and joseph h. h. 2 GATT provides two replies to the which question: the discipline of national treatment applies to “like products” simpliciter as well as products which are in “direct competition or are substitutable” even if not “like” in a narrow sense.

Could there be a situation where substitutable products would not be in competition with each other? A high degree of functional substitutability between two products should naturally contribute to a competitive relationship in the market.

Therefore, if firms are constrained in their capacity to increase production, there is not a very competitive relationship in the market, despite the fact that products are highly substitutable on the demand side.
