Abstract

The intersection of the intellectual property and competition laws presents uniquely complicated legal issues. This book, part of the series "Critical Concepts in Intellectual Property Law," brings together 14 of the most important works written about the intersection.

The entries, from leading judges, government officials, academics, and economists, explore the history of intellectual property (Hovenkamp), the "new economy" (Pitofsky, Posner), and frameworks to resolve the tension between the laws (Baxter, Bowman, Carrier, Kaplow). They also address refusals to license (Hovenkamp/Janis/Lemley), patent pools (Merges, Shapiro), standard setting organizations (Lemley), innovation markets (Carrier, Gilbert/Sunshine, Rai), and pharmaceutical patent settlements (Hemphill).

Included authors: William F. Baxter, Ward S. Bowman, Jr., Michael A. Carrier, C. Scott Hemphill, Herbert Hovenkamp, Mark D. Janis, Louis Kaplow, Mark A. Lemley, Robert P. Merges, Robert Pitofsky, Richard A. Posner, Arti K. Rai, Carl Shapiro
