The box in the 5th row, on “Functional link with free movement” must read:

Functional link with free movement

EU competition law and EU law on free movement are functionally linked:
• For EU competition law to apply, the conduct in question must have a (potential) effect on trade between Member States (so-called “inter-state” or “internal market element”; see Chart C7, Chart C29, Chart C49).
• EU competition law and free movement law can apply simultaneously; e.g. Essent Netwerk (2008), Presidente del Consiglio (2009), Murphy (2011).
