Abstract

It is still controversial whether the intellectual property-antitrust interface should be viewed as a conflict or a finalistic convergence. The recent Chinese Regulation on the “Prohibition of Conduct Eliminating or Restricting Competition by Abusing Intellectual Property Rights” provides the opportunity to update the analysis of this real (or apparent) conflict.

Keywords: Antitrust, Intellectual property, China, Essential facility doctrine, Standard, Essential patents
