Abstract

The National Cooperative Research and Production Act reduces the potential antitrust liabilities for various types of joint ventures involving research and development, production, or standards development in order to encourage their formation and operation. The chapter focuses on whether there is a need for such protections in the case of research joint ventures and examines the controversial possibility that the Act provides unnecessary, and perhaps even too much, antitrust protection.
