Luxury Markets, Antitrust, and Intellectual Property: An Introduction

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Ben Kleinman offers Luxury Markets, Antitrust, and Intellectual Property: An Introduction.

ABSTRACT: In this paper I look at markets for luxury goods and begin exploring the interplay among trademark law, antitrust law, luxury goods, and copies of luxuries. In the absence of empirical data and economic theories directly on point, I informally extend a model of luxury markets to account for copies of luxury goods and then look to trademark law cases for indications of how courts might evaluate luxury markets in an antitrust context.
