`Professor Carrier has done an excellent job of assembling the most significant scholarship on the intersection of intellectual property and competition laws. The major schools of thought are fairly represented. This volume is comprehensive and includes both the essential foundational work in this field as well as recent influential commentaries on the latest controversies, including patent pools, refusals to license, and reverse settlements in pharmaceutical patent litigation.' - Christopher R. Leslie, University of California - Irvine, US The intersection of the intellectual property and competition laws presents uniquely complicated legal issues. In this essential volume Professor Carrier brings together 14 of the most important works written about the intersection. The entries, from leading judges, government officials, academics, and economists, explore history, the `new economy', and frameworks to resolve the tension between the laws. They also address refusals to license, patent pools, innovation markets, standard setting organizations, and pharmaceutical patent settlements. Alongside an original introduction, this book is an authoritative reference tool for attorneys, academics, and others interested in intellectual property and competition issues.
