More Common Ground For International Competition Law?

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Josef Drexl, Director, Max Planck Institute for Intellectual Property and Competition Law, Warren S. Grimes, Southwestern Law School, Clifford A. Jones, University of Florida, Rudolph J.R. Peritz, New York Law School, and Edward T. Swaine, George Washington University Law School, ask More Common Ground For International Competition Law? in their edited volume.

BOOK ABSTRACT: In recent years, an impressive proliferation of competition laws has been seen around the world. Whilst this development may lead to greater diversity of approaches, economic arguments may promote convergence. The contributions to this book look at a number of the most topical issues by asking whether the competition world is turning more towards convergence or diversity. These issues include, among others, the changing role of economics in times of economic crises and political change, the introduction of criminal sanctions, resale-price maintenance, unilateral conduct and the application of competition law to intellectual property and state-owned enterprises.
