Abuse of a dominant position is a danger to the functioning of the free market. In most countries, finding an abuse of dominance involves several distinct steps: defining the relevant market, determining whether the firm is dominant by considering its market share, barriers to entry and other characteristics, and evaluating whether the behavior was abusive in terms of the competition law. The aim of this paper is to present the legal and practical problems in controlling abuse of market dominance in Ethiopia, under the latest competition law of Ethiopia which is trade competition and consumers’ protection proclamation number 813/2013. In order to achieve these goals, I have used the content analysis to discover both legal and practical problems in controlling abuse of market dominance in Ethiopia.
