Restraints on Innovation

Show Summary Details


This chapter turns to one place where antitrust policy and IP policy should be aligned—namely, where a practice serves to restrain rather than promote innovation. Unfortunately antitrust's strict proof requirements for harm and effects on price competition often stand in the way of making antitrust a useful device for challenging restraints on innovation, particularly in private lawsuits.

Keywords: antitrust policy; intellectual property law; innovation; price competition
