The Silicon Flatirons Program at the University of Colorado will be hosting a program on Taking Stock of the Antitrust Modernization Commission Report in lovely Boulder, CO on September 5. The program looks good with a mix of AMC members, academics and practitioners. From the conference press release:
This conference will evaluate the judgments of the Antitrust Modernization Commission report, examining its basic conclusion that there are no fundamental flaws in modern antitrust law and practice as well as its various suggestions for reform. To do so, we will bring together some of the Commissioners who evaluated the state of antitrust law, current and former antitrust enforcers, and a number of leading antitrust practitioners. In particular, we will examine the report’s conclusions within three broad headings—Rethinking Merger Review; Antitrust in the New Economy; and the Antitrust/IP Interface.
