Loren Data Corp v. GXS Inc. on VAN Interconnection Peering rights.

Connected industries, such as EDI Commerce transactions, need to foster collegial interconnections, advanced standards, directory services, and ID portability in order to thrive and meet the needs of its end user constituencies. The greatest detriment to a fully meshed and available communications marketplace (routing dependent) is when private equity rolls up and arbitrages interconnections to otherwise bona fide networks that are fully deserving of non-settlement peer interconnection. The similarity of the progression of antitrust actions and the subsequent regulations that emerge in the related communications and transport sectors is startling.
