Economic Law, Inequality, And Hidden Hierarchies On The Eu Internal Market, Damjan Kukovec 2016 Harvard Law School

Economic Law, Inequality, And Hidden Hierarchies On The Eu Internal Market, Damjan Kukovec

Michigan Journal of International Law

This Article has several aims. First, the aim is to show the continuing importance and relevance of antitrust and international trade lawyers in countering the concentration of power in the hands of the few or in some geographic areas of the world, if some of the assumptions of antitrust and trade are adjusted. Second, the goal is to articulate a particular analysis from the perspective of the (European) periphery. As the recent Euro crises and the near exit of Greece from the Union show, the European prospect of development for all has not arrived. This Article will articulate the privilege ...


Do Patent Challenges Increase Competition?, Stephen Yelderman 2016 University of Notre Dame

Do Patent Challenges Increase Competition?, Stephen Yelderman

Journal Articles

As a general rule, judges and scholars believe settlement is a good thing. But for nearly a century, the Supreme Court has said that patent litigation is categorically different, since it offers the chance to increase competition by freeing the public from the burdens of a monopoly. Based on this theory, and in the hopes of seeing more patent litigation fought to completion, the Court has overturned long-standing common-law doctrines, declined to enforce otherwise-valid contracts, and—in the recent case of Federal Trade Commission v Actavis, Inc—subjected patent settlements to scrutiny under the antitrust laws. Similar reasoning has resulted ...


Antitrust Jurisprudence In The Second Circuit, Saul P. Morgenstern, Jennifer B. Patterson, Terri A. Mazur 2016 Kaye Scholer LLP

Antitrust Jurisprudence In The Second Circuit, Saul P. Morgenstern, Jennifer B. Patterson, Terri A. Mazur

Fordham Law Review

A running thread through Second Circuit antitrust jurisprudence is a willingness to examine market participants’ real-world conduct and the consequences of that conduct in seeking out the balance between incentivizing robust competition and protecting the market—and ultimately consumers—from distortions caused by anticompetitive conduct. This Article collects and describes rulings that reflect such themes in Second Circuit antitrust jurisprudence. The court’s long history in this substantive space, its likely continued exposure to critical antitrust questions, and the importance of this area of the law to our national economy assure that others will be examining and shedding further light ...


Modifying Merger Consent Decrees To Improve Merger Enforcement Policy, Steven C. Salop 2016 Georgetown University Law Center

Modifying Merger Consent Decrees To Improve Merger Enforcement Policy, Steven C. Salop

Georgetown Law Faculty Publications and Other Works

This article analyzes my short proposal for reviewing and modifying merger consent decrees to permit additional relief if the provisions of the initial consent merger are found to fail to preserve or restore competition in a reasonable period of time after the merger was consummated. My proposal also would involve more frequent reviews of consummated mergers that have been cleared without challenge, particularly those that were close calls. While “Don't Look Back” might be the best anthem for artists, economic decision theory would not support that approach to merger policy.

Predicting the impact of proposed mergers and remedies on ...

Post-Kirtsaeng, 'Material Differences' Between Copyright And Trademark Law's Treatment Of Gray Goods Persist, Charles E. Colman 2016 NYU School of Law

Post-Kirtsaeng, 'Material Differences' Between Copyright And Trademark Law's Treatment Of Gray Goods Persist, Charles E. Colman

Charles Colman

The U.S. Supreme Court’s recent ruling in Kirtsaeng v. John Wiley & Sons would seem no trivial event for stakeholders in content-reliant industries. The upshot of the Court’s decision — that the Copyright Act cannot be used to prevent the unauthorized importation of copies of works, even if manufactured abroad, whose “first sale” has already occurred — will, at least initially, throw a wrench into many companies’ existing business models.As one would expect, commentary on the decision has been extensive. With few exceptions, however, commentators attempting to predict the impact of Kirtsaeng have not looked beyond copyright law to ...


The Hidden Costs Of Free Goods: Implications For Antitrust Enforcement, Michal S. Gal, Daniel L. Rubinfeld 2016 University of Haifa

The Hidden Costs Of Free Goods: Implications For Antitrust Enforcement, Michal S. Gal, Daniel L. Rubinfeld

Daniel L. Rubinfeld

Today a growing number of goods and services are provided in the marketplace free of charge; indeed, free or the appearance of free, have become part of our ecosystem. More often than not, free goods and services provide real benefits to consumers and are clearly pro-competitive. Yet free goods may also create significant costs. We show that despite the fact that the consumer does not pay a direct price, there are indirect prices that reflect the opportunity cost associated with the consumption of free goods. These indirect costs can be overt or covert, in the same market in which the ...


Shareholder Wealth Maximization As Means To An End, Robert P. Bartlett, III 2016 Selected Works

Shareholder Wealth Maximization As Means To An End, Robert P. Bartlett, Iii

Robert Bartlett

In several recent cases, the Delaware Chancery Court has emphasized that where a conflict of interest exists between holders of a company’s common stock and holders of its preferred stock, the standard of conduct for directors requires that they strive to maximize the value of the corporation for the benefit of its common stockholders rather than for its preferred stockholders. This article interrogates this view of directors’ fiduciary duties from the perspective of incomplete contracting theory. Building on the seminal work of Sanford Grossman and Oliver Hart, incomplete contracting theory examines the critical role of corporate control rights for ...


Financial Hospitals: Defending The Fed’S Role As A Market Maker Of Last Resort, José Gabilondo 2016 Selected Works

Financial Hospitals: Defending The Fed’S Role As A Market Maker Of Last Resort, José Gabilondo

José Gabilondo

During the last financial crisis, what should the Federal Reserve (the Fed) have done when lenders stopped making loans, even to borrowers with sterling credit and strong collateral? Because the central bank is the last resort for funding, the conventional answer had been to lend freely at a penalty rate against good collateral, as Walter Bagehot suggested in 1873 about the Bank of England. Acting thus as a lender of last resort, the central bank will keep solvent banks liquid but let insolvent banks go out of business, as they should. The Fed tried this, but when the conventional wisdom ...

Intellectual Property, Antitrust, And The Rule Of Law: Between Private Power And State Power, Ariel Katz 2016 Faculty of Law, University of Toronto

Intellectual Property, Antitrust, And The Rule Of Law: Between Private Power And State Power, Ariel Katz

Ariel Katz

This Article explores the rule of law aspects of the intersection between intellectual property and antitrust law. Contemporary discussions and debates on intellectual property (IP), antitrust, and the intersection between them are typically framed in economically oriented terms. This Article, however, shows that there is more law in law than just economics. It demonstrates how the rule of law has influenced the development of several IP doctrines, and the interface between IP and antitrust, in important, albeit not always acknowledged, ways. In particular, it argues that some limitations on IP rights, such as exhaustion and limitations on tying arrangements, are ...


Patent Privateers And Antitrust Fears, Matthew Sipe 2016 University of Michigan Law School

Patent Privateers And Antitrust Fears, Matthew Sipe

Michigan Telecommunications and Technology Law Review

Patent trolls are categorically demonized as threatening American innovation and industry. But whether they are a threat that antitrust law is equipped to deal with is a complex question that depends on the particular type of patent troll and activities they engage in. This Article looks specifically at privateer patent trolls: entities that acquire their patents from operating entities and assert them against other industry members. In the particular context of privateering, antitrust law is almost certainly not the proper legal solution. Privateering does raise significant issues: circumventing litigation constraints, evading licensing obligations, and raising the cost and frequency of ...


Exploitative Abuses Of Intellectual Property Rights, Harry First 2016 NYU School of Law

Exploitative Abuses Of Intellectual Property Rights, Harry First

New York University Law and Economics Working Papers

It is the standard view in the United States that U.S. antitrust law does not reach acts of exploitation by a monopolist, particularly monopoly pricing (“rent extraction”). Even more so for intellectual property, where U.S. courts have emphasized the right of an intellectual property right holder to raise prices and exploit its rights to the fullest, constrained only by market demand. Competition law in the rest of the world appears to be otherwise, however, with many countries generally condemning excessive high prices by dominant firms, even if often reluctant to invoke such provisions in practice.

Despite apparent differences ...


Mannington Mills, Inc. V. Congoleum Corp.: A Perfect Storm Of Extraterritoriality In Patent And Antitrust Law, Benjamin Holt 2016 Indiana University - Bloomington

Mannington Mills, Inc. V. Congoleum Corp.: A Perfect Storm Of Extraterritoriality In Patent And Antitrust Law, Benjamin Holt

Indiana Journal of Global Legal Studies

The invention of chemically embossed cushioned vinyl flooring revolutionized the flooring industry in the mid-1900s, and the patents on this technology became the basis for large-scale litigation between two of the industry's leaders. This is the story of Mannington Mills, Inc. v. Congoleum Corp.-a case that implicated foreign patent rights and the territorial nature of patent law, the extraterritorial scope of U.S. antitrust law (at a time when this scope was changing and uncertain), competing doctrines of jurisdiction and abstention, and emerging international comity concerns. These legal issues combined to create a perfect storm of extraterritoriality by ...
