Antitrust And The Patent System: A Reexamination, Herbert Hovenkamp 2015 University of Iowa

Antitrust And The Patent System: A Reexamination, Herbert Hovenkamp

Herbert Hovenkamp

Since the federal antitrust laws were first passed they have cycled through extreme positions on the relationship between competition law and the patent system. Previous studies of antitrust and the patent system have generally assumed that patents are valid, discrete, and generally of high quality in the sense that they further innovation. As a result, increasing the returns to patenting increases the incentive to do socially valuable innovation. Further, if the returns to the patentee exceed the social losses caused by increased exclusion, the tradeoff is positive and antitrust should not interfere. If a patent does nothing to further innovation ...

The Rule Of Reason And The Scope Of The Patent, Herbert Hovenkamp 2014 University of Iowa

The Rule Of Reason And The Scope Of The Patent, Herbert Hovenkamp

Herbert Hovenkamp

For a century and a half the Supreme Court has described perceived patent abuses as conduct that reaches "beyond the scope of the patent." That phrase, which evokes an image of boundary lines in real property, has been applied to both government and private activity and has many different meanings. It has been used offensively to conclude that certain patent uses are unlawful because they extend beyond the scope of the patent. It is also used defensively, however, to characterize activities as lawful if they do not extend beyond the patent's scope. In the first half of the twentieth ...


A Comprehensive Economic And Legal Analysis Of Tying Arrangements, Guy Sagi 2014 Seattle University School of Law

A Comprehensive Economic And Legal Analysis Of Tying Arrangements, Guy Sagi

Seattle University Law Review

The law of tying arrangements as it stands does not correspond with modern economic analysis. Therefore, and because tying arrangements are so widely common, the law is expected to change and extensive academic writing is currently attempting to guide its way. In tying arrangements, monopolistic firms coerce consumers to buy additional products or services beyond what they intended to purchase. This pressure can be applied because a consumer in a monopolistic market does not have the alternative to buy the product or service from a competing firm. In the absence of such choice, the monopolistic firm can allegedly force the ...


E-Books, Collusion, And Antitrust Policy: Protecting A Dominant Firm At The Cost Of Innovation, Nicholas Timchalk 2014 Seattle University School of Law

E-Books, Collusion, And Antitrust Policy: Protecting A Dominant Firm At The Cost Of Innovation, Nicholas Timchalk

Seattle University Law Review

Amazon’s main rival, Apple, went to great lengths and took major risks to enter the e-book market. Why did Apple simply choose not to compete on the merits of its product and brand equity (the iPad and iBookstore) as it does with its other products? Why did Apple decide not to continue to rely on its earlier success of situating its products differently in the market than other electronics and working hard to be different and cutting-edge with its e-book delivery? This Note argues that the combination of Amazon’s 90% market share, network externalities, and an innovative technology ...

Is There A Market For Organic Search Engine Results And Can Their Manipulation Give Rise To Antitrust Liability?, Daniel L. Rubinfeld, James Ratliff 2014 Berkeley Law

Is There A Market For Organic Search Engine Results And Can Their Manipulation Give Rise To Antitrust Liability?, Daniel L. Rubinfeld, James Ratliff

Daniel L. Rubinfeld

Google has been accused of manipulating its organic search results to favor its own services. We explore possible choices of relevant antitrust markets that might make these various antitrust allegations meaningful. We argue that viewing Internet search in isolation ignores the two-sided nature of the search-advertising platform and the feedback effects that link the provision of organic search results to consumers on the one hand, and the sale to businesses of advertising on the other. We conclude that the relevant market in which Google competes with respect to Internet search is at least as broad as a two-sided search-advertising market ...

The Strategic Use Of Download Limits By A Monopoly Platform, Nicholas Economides, Benjamin E. Hermalin 2014 NELLCO

The Strategic Use Of Download Limits By A Monopoly Platform, Nicholas Economides, Benjamin E. Hermalin

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

We consider a heretofore unexplored explanation for why platforms, such as Internet service providers and mobile-phone networks, offer plans with download limits: through one of two mechanisms, doing so causes the providers of the content consumer purchase to either reduce their prices or increase their quality. This, in turn, generates greater surplus for consumers. A platform captures this increased surplus by charging consumers higher access fees. Even accounting for congestion externalities, we show that a platform will tend to restrict downloads more than would be welfare-maximizing; indeed, in some instances, by so much that a complete prohibition on such behavior ...
