Getting the Balance Right: Intellectual Property, Competition Law and Economics in Asia

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

The National University of Singapore has a great looking conference in the works for September 7, 2009 - Getting the Balance Right: Intellectual Property, Competition Law and Economics in Asia.

This one-day Symposium brings together lawyers and economists interested in the intersection between intellectual property laws and competition laws. The prime focus is on how best to balance these laws to improve, in a practical way, economic welfare in Asia. After two Keynote presentations by Bill Kovacic and David Teece dealing with the regulation and the underlying economics of intellectual property and competition laws, an economist and lawyer will present papers on selected countries in Asia. The dinner speech will be given by Judge Douglas Ginsberg of the USA.
