Winners, Losers & Microsoft: Competition and Antitrust in High Technology
Few issues in high technology are as divisive as the raging debate over competition, innovation, and antitrust. Why do certain products and technologies become dominant while others fail? Is there something about high technology that makes markets less dependable at choosing goods and services? Will the robust competition and technological advances of the past two decades continue? Or, will they be suffocated by larger firms employing monopolistic practices? Is antitrust primarily employed against monopolies to increase competition for the benefit of consumers, or is it actually a vehicle that firms use against their rivals to restrict the competitive process? This book examines these and other questions confronting high-technology markets.
