Summary "This book examines some of the notions of the complex antitrust-intellectual property interface, focusing primarily on property and dynamic economic doctrines. The extensive discussion addresses antitrust patterns of unilateral behaviour and the intellectual property (IP) institutions of patents and copyright." "The author provides an evaluation of the intricacies of antitrust and IP from a broad legal, philosophical and economic perspective. In the economic context she considers the Chicago and Austrian schools of market theory, whilst on the legal and philosophical level she explores antitrust and IP doctrines through the lenses of property, philosophy of rights and history. In this way the reader gains a deeper understanding of the antitrust and IP crossroads, an area that is growing in importance as information plays an ever-increasing role in today's markets."
"This book provides a theoretical appraisal of the complex issues that arise when antitrust and IP considerations seem to be at odds with one another. It offers an alternative to the Chicago school of antitrust, and makes a contribution to the Austrian school of economics. Lawyers, industrial economists and academics working on IP, antitrust and competition will all find this to be an informative volume. It will also be a source of reference for anyone interested in philosophy of property rights."--BOOK JACKET
