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.
