IP and Antitrust: An Analysis of Antitrust Principles Applied to
Intellectual Property Law, Second Editiont is a two-volume reference
that focuses on the intersection of the areas of IP and antitrust
. While intellectual property licensing arrangements are
typically pro-competitive, antitrust concerns may nonetheless arise.
Licensing arrangements raise concerns under the antitrust laws if they
are likely to adversely affect the prices, quantities, qualities or varieties
of goods and services -- either currently or potentially available. The
Justice Department's rekindled interest in intellectual property licensing
arrangements now requires that companies factor antitrust
considerations into the drafting and review of intellectual property
licensing arrangements. Thus, licensing agreements involving
intellectual property must now be drafted with two considerations in mind:
maximizing the commercial value of intellectual property rights, and
minimizing antitrust risks
IP and Antitrust is the first comprehensive resource that fully
examines intellectual property from an antitrust perspective, to
help you steer clear of unexpected problems. It provides a sophisticated
discussion of intellectual property law not currently available in the
antitrust treatises on the market today, including Areeda and Hovenkamp's
Antitrust Law treatise.
