I promised myself not to feed trolls, but just out of curiosity, which are the undertakings entering into illicit agreements under art. 81? Assuming you mean the FSF and/or GNU project, with whom are they entering onto agreement? Mmmmh? Also, please have a look at 81 § 3. I'll also let you know that you have to demonstrate a negative effect on the european market to win a case on art. 81 §1. Good luck with that. My educated opinion is hence that art. 81 is not a problem with regard to art. 81. The GPL is a contract between a producer and a buyer of goods, not between producers, and is not in any regard price-fixing. Funnily enough, I have just been asked to write upon the subject, but have declined to a career change I'm considering.
