The Department of Economics of the University of Milan and INTERTIC organize the International Conference on Competition Policy and Property Rights, with the
III STACKELBERG LECTURE by:
Prof Sir John VICKERS (Oxford University)
One of the most controversial questions in current competition policy is when, if ever, should competition law require a firm with market power to share its property, notably intellectual property, with its rivals? And if supply is required, on what terms? These questions are discussed by one of the leading experts with reference to recent law cases including the EC Microsoft judgment of 2007 and the US LinkLine case of 2009. John Vicker's analysis focuses on whether competition law and regulation are complements or substitutes, and on incentives for investment and (sequential) innovation.
The Gala Dinner will take place for all the partecipants at Restaurant Bagutta on September 15th.
We will provide free accommodation for all the conference participants at the Hotel Galles.
