Abstract

In his recent article, Antitrust and Information Technology, Professor Hovenkamp addresses some of the most important issues involving antitrust. In particular, he addresses the issues of market power, consumer choice in the context of Google, the Apple e-books case, net neutrality and antitrust issues involving FRAND commitments and patent pooling. In doing so, Professor Hovenkamp offers an intellectual tour du force of most of the important issues in this interface of antitrust, intellectual property and high tech. Further, Professor Hovenkamp offers a policy roadmap for courts and antitrust authorities. This response provides an overview of the article and offers some suggestions of further implications of Professor Hovenkamp’s work.
