LAW P 509
Antitrust and Intellectual Property Rights
This course examines how intellectual property laws and policies complement and conflict with antitrust/competition laws and policies. It analyzes how governments and IP owners assess the interplay of these laws during the course of creating, exploiting and/or transferring intellectual property rights, and the manner in which the competition law/intellectual property law interface plays out in the international arena. The course explores how courts and administrative agencies weigh and resolve disputes between IP rights holders and government authorities, competitors, and consumers in a variety of business contexts, such as refusals to license technology, product integration of various technologies and products, standards setting and patent pooling. A prior course in antitrust/competition law is recommended but not required.
