I strongly disagree with you. VISA, Mastercard, and Wal-mart are all corporations seeking to provide we the consumers with certain services. The spirit behind antitrust laws is consumer choice, and WE are the consumers - WE THE CUSTOMERS/CONSUMERS are what drives antitrust issues. Antitrust issues were not meant to protect the large corporations (look at AT&T in 1984) - they were meant to protect US FROM the corporations.
