Abstract

One of the more confusing areas of antitrust law is that dealing with group boycotts. The term has been applied to at least three distinct practices. This draft chapter of a forthcoming book focuses on regulatory and classic boycotts. It assesses them from the perspective of the economics of intellectual property. The conclusion is that regulatory boycotts are most appropriately viewed as potential ancillary restraints while classic boycotts are best teated as per se unlawful.

Keywords: antitrust, boycotts, ancillary restraint
