Conscious Parallelism

Definition

A theory of antitrust liability in which firms in a concentrated market deliberately match each other’s conduct. Conscious parallelism is not unlawful by itself. However, conscious parallelism does violate antitrust law if additional evidence both shows the existence of a conspiracy, and excludes the possibility of independent action.
