Competition Law and Intellectual Property Law: The Regulation of Innovation

About this course: 

The course illustrates the connections among innovation policy, competition law and intellectual property (IP) rights and shows the way in which the law can work as a key instrument of innovation policy. The subjects covered include:

  • competition law and monopolistic practices involving IP rights
  • vertical integration and related licensing practices by IP holders
  • horizontal restraints involving IP rights licensing
  • mechanisms integrating competition policy concerns within IP law (e.g. the patent misuse doctrine,
    compulsory licensing)
  • the development of international standards for the IP/Antitrust interface (WTO)
  • the interaction between competition law and IP rights in specific sectors such as pharmaceuticals,
    biotechnology or software.

This course is held on Fridays from 2-4pm
Teachers: Dr Ioannis Lianos, Dr Matt Fisher, Dr Christopher Stothers, Professor Valentine Korah, Professor John Kallaugher
