Long standing business model no longer to be legal?

Having blogged a couple of days ago about the danger of having a business model that could be seriously affected by legislative change, here’s a specific example of that happening.  For four hundred years in the UK, some pubs in the UK have been ‘tied’ – that is to say they pay rent to the brewer that owns the pub at a discount, but in return they must purchase their stock from that brewer.  Given that this has been going on for such a long time, the reasons why it is now deemed to be unacceptable are quite complex.  So for an excellent explanation of the whys and wherefores of the argument, go to this excellent ‘Q & A‘ on the BBC News website.
