To help us parse out the larger meaning of the Microsoft decision, we have two of the world's leading experts on Microsoft and monopolization/abuse of dominance blogging with us this week- long time collaborators William Page of the University of Florida Levin College of Law and John Lopatka of Penn State Dickinson College of Law. Together they have recently published The Microsoft Case: Antitrust, High Technology, and Consumer Welfare (University of Chicago Press 2007). They also serve (along with Notre Dame's Joe Bauer) as co-authors of the multi-volume treatise, Federal Antitrust Law. These tag team members are among the most prolific and influential antitrust scholars today. We are greatly honored that they are guest blogging with us.
Bill joined the University of Florida's Levin College of Law in 2001 as Marshall M. Criser Eminent Scholar in Electronic Communications and Administrative Law. Previously, he taught at the Mississippi College of Law and at Boston University School of Law. He also served as a DOJ Antitrust Section trial attorney.
John joined Penn State Dickinson School of Law from the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he was the Solomon Blatt Professor of Law. His title at Penn State is the A. Robert Noll Distinguished Professor of Law. He began his full-time teaching career at the University of Illinois College of Law and also served as an Associate in Law and Fellow in the Center for Law and Economic Studies at Columbia University Law School. He served as assistant director for planning for the Bureau of Competition of the Federal Trade Commission and from 2001 until 2004, he was a consultant to the Office of General Counsel of the Federal Trade Commission.
