Description

This book explores the interplay between EU competition rules and intellectual property rights. It will include introductory chapters into the basic principles of intellectual property law, the main categories of intellectual property rights and EU competition and the book will examine the application of EU competition law to specific issues raised by the exercise of intellectual property rights, including R&D collaboration, standardization, licensing, patent pools, online dissemination of copyrighted content, duties to license, limits on injunctions, vexatious litigation, free movement rules, privateering arrangements, and merger control. In doing so, the book will consider practical issues commonly encountered in IP-heavy industries, including the pharmaceutical, media, and ITC sectors. The book will also provide an up to date discussion of the most recent developments at the intersection of competition law and IP rights, including the ruling of the Court of Justice in Huawei vs. ZTE, the EU Commission’s investigation of dissemination of Pay TV and online content across Member States, and the debate on the calculation of FRAND royalties for standard essential patents.
