The delicate problems of the evolving relationship between supranational, European Economic Community Treaty law and the national law of the member countries are dramatically illustrated by the decisions of national courts and the Commission of the European Economic Community in the series of cases dealing with the legitimacy of sole distributorships coterminous with national boundaries of the member countries. The operational context of the actual cases in this field not only constitutes a more dramatic setting than the abstract study of the bare provisions of the Treaty of Rome and its implementing regulations; it also effectively brings to light a broader range of treaty-national-law interrelationships.
