'The marker': a short film about cartels

The ACCC has made a fictional short film called The marker to demonstrate the devastating impact cartels can have on the people involved. The film was inspired, in part, by Melbourne University research showing gaps in business awareness of the illegality of cartel conduct.

The film shows how cartel activity can ruin relationships, careers and long-term financial security, and may ultimately land guilty parties in jail.

It can be viewed on the ACCC YouTube channel.

Please view the film before moving on to the next section of this module.
