How Intellectual Property Rights Interact with Competition Law and Policy in Korea: QUO VADIS?

Youngjin Jung asks How Intellectual Property Rights Interact with Competition Law and Policy in Korea: QUO VADIS?

ABSTRACT: In recent years, Korea has become a major battleground in prominent cases regarding the intersection between competition law and intellectual property rights (‘IPR’s). On 28 December 2016, after a yearlong deliberation following the issuance of the Examiner’s Report (equivalent of Statement of Objections in Europe), the Korea Fair Trade Commission (‘KFTC’) surprised the world by taking decisive actions against Qualcomm in its alleged abuse of IPRs, which were tougher than what the NDRC of China had imposed in terms of its breadth and implications on the mobile ecosystem.
