Luxury Markets, Antitrust, and Intellectual Property: An Introduction
Kilpatrick Townsend - San Francisco Office; NYU - School of Law, Alumnus
In this paper I look at markets for luxury goods and begin exploring the interplay among trademark law, antitrust law, luxury goods, and copies of luxuries. In the absence of empirical data and economic theories directly on point, I informally extend a model of luxury markets to account for copies of luxury goods and then look to trademark law cases for indications of how courts might evaluate luxury markets in an antitrust context.
