(Measure passed House, amended, roll call #360 (377-34))

Soft Drink Interbrand Competition Act - Declares that exclusive territorial arrangements made as a part of a licensing agreement for the manufacture, distribution, or sale of a trademarked soft drink product are lawful under the antitrust laws provided such product is in substantial and effective competition with other products for the same general class in the relevant market or markets.

Declares that nothing in this Act shall be construed to legalize any unlawful means of price fixing agreements, horizontal restraints of trade, or group boycotts in any effort to enforce provisions of such Act

Makes provisions of the Clayton Act authorizing suspension of the statute of limitations in antitrust proceedings, inapplicable to such pending litigation concerned with enforcement of provisions of this Act.

Provides that, as used in this Act, "antitrust law" means the Sherman Act, the Clayton Act, and the Federal Trade Commission Act.
