IP as Competition Policy

Posted by Shubha Ghosh

My co-author Richard Gruner invited me to give a distinguished lecture at John Marshall Law School in Chicago this past Monday.  I spoke on the topic of IP as CP:  Competition Policy Norms in Intellectual Property Law.  The talk focused on recent Supreme Court decisions in the area of intellectual property law, particularly, Merck. Independent Ink, eBay, Medimmune, and KSR, and argued that this line of cases illustrates the Supreme Court's concerns with competition norms in intellectual property.   I contrasted the Supreme Court's views on competition with those of the Federal Circuit and used this contrast as background to understand what is at stake in the Quanta v. LG Electronics litigation that is before the Court this term.  An audio file of the talk can be downloaded here [Download JMTalk42808.WMA]  for those who are interested.
