This book is an effort to consolidate several different perspectives on antitrust law. First, Professor Hylton has presents a detailed description of the law as it has developed through numerous judicial opinions. Second, the author presents detailed economic critiques of the judicial opinions, drawing heavily on the literature in law and economics journals. Third, Professor Hylton integrates a jurisprudential perspective into the analysis that looks at antitrust as a vibrant field of common law. This last perspective leads the author to address issues of certainty, stability, and predictability in antitrust law, and to examine the pressures shaping its evolution.

In this outstanding new book Professor Keith Hylton and his collaborators examine what antitrust law has become over the past ten years, a time in which economic analysis has become its undisputed core. What has become of the old antitrust doctrine, what are the new issues for the immediate future? This book brings together the leading experts to examine this silent revolution at the core of US domestic policy. Mark Grady, UCLA School of Law, US Hylton s Antitrust Law and Economics brings together many of the best authors writing in antitrust today. Their essays range widely, covering proof of agreement under the Sherman Act, group boycotts, monopolization and essential facilities, tying and other vertical restraints, and merger policy. The writing is clear, accessible but still technically sophisticated and comprehensive. This book represents the best in contemporary antitrust scholarship, by authors who understand and are able to communicate the centrality of economic analysis to antitrust. No antitrust lawyer, serious antitrust student, or antitrust economist should be without this book. Herbert Hovenkamp, University of Iowa College of Law, US This comprehensive book provides an extensive overview of the major topics of antitrust law from an economic perspective. Its in-depth treatment and analysis of both the law and economics of antitrust is presented via a collection of interconnected original essays. The contributing authors are among the most influential scholars in antitrust, with a rich diversity of backgrounds. Their entries cover, amongst other issues, predatory pricing, essential facilities, tying, vertical restraints, enforcement, mergers, market power, monopolization standards, and facilitating practices. This well-organized and substantial work will be invaluable to professors of American antitrust law and European competition law, as well as students specializing in competition law. It will also be an important reference for professors and graduate students of economics and business.

English summary: Since the mid 1980s, the European Commission and the European Parliament have introduced a series of initiatives in order to reverse existing territorial fragmentation of civil law through a greater convergence or even harmonization of the most important private law norms of the member states. These should ideally culminate in a Europeanization of civil law. This is the basis for the current law and economics debate, to which this conference is dedicated. The debate focuses on the question of whether or not a harmonization of the civil law norms of the member states is really necessary or even suitable in order to achieve free movement of goods, services, persons and capital within the European Union or to give the European consumer adequate protection. German description: Seit Mitte der 1980er Jahre gibt es eine Reihe von Initiativen der Europaischen Kommission und des Europaischen Parlaments, die darauf hinzielen, die bestehende territoriale Zersplitterung des Zivilrechts durch eine starkere Annaherung oder gar Harmonisierung der wesentlichen zivilrechtlichen Normen der Mitgliedstaaten wieder aufzuheben und letztlich eine Europaisierung des Zivilrechts herbeizufuhren. Genau hier setzt die aktuelle Diskussion an, der sich der vorliegende Tagungsband aus der Sicht der okonomischen Analyse des Rechts widmet. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, ob eine Harmonisierung zivilrechtlicher Normen der Mitgliedstaaten tatsachlich erforderlich und auch geeignet ist, einen freizugigen Verkehr von Waren, Dienstleistungen, Personen und Kapital in der Europaischen Union durchzusetzen oder die europaischen Verbraucher angemessen zu schutzen. Weiterhin wird diskutiert, wie die harmonisierten zivilrechtlichen Normen inhaltlich beschaffen sein mussen, um die proklamierten Binnenmarkt- und verbraucherpolitischen Ziele zu erreichen, und ob die zivilrechtlichen Normen, die bereits zum Bestand des acquis communautaire gehoren, diesen Anforderungen genugen. Verschiedene Beitrage widmen sich der Frage, unter welchen Bedingungen eine dezentrale 'Produktion' von Rechtsnormen durch die nationalen Gesetzgeber zu einem Wettbewerb zwischen den verschiedenen Rechtsordnungen fuhrt - sei es in der Form eines yardstick competition, sei es in der Form eines mobilitatsgetriebenen Wettbewerbs - und ob in diesem Fall der Wettbewerb tendenziell zu einer Verbesserung oder einer Verschlechterung des Status quo fuhrt.

English summary: Against the background of the ongoing debate in Europe on the more economic approach to competition law, Wolfgang Wurmnest gives a critical account of the orthodox interpretation and application of German and European abuse control prohibitions. Based on an economic and comparative analysis which includes US law, he advocates a more sophisticated assessment when applying abuse control law to exclusionary conduct. His approach combines the needs of the law with modern economic insights. German description: Vor dem Hintergrund der in ganz Europa gefuhrten Debatte um den more economic approach im Kartellrecht stellt Wolfgang Wurmest die Missbrauchsaufsicht uber marktbeherrschende Unternehmen auf den Prufstand. Auf Grundlage einer rechtsokonomischen Analyse und eines Vergleichs mit dem US-amerikanischen Recht zeigt er auf, wie das deutsche und das europaische Missbrauchsverbot auszulegen und anzuwenden sind, so dass unter Berucksichtigung der Eigengesetzlichkeiten des Rechts modernen okonomischen Erkenntnissen Rechnung getragen wird. Die zweite Auflage bringt das Werk auf den Stand von April 2012 und berucksichtigt bereits den Regierungsentwurf fur die 8. GWB-Novelle, mit der eine Neuordnung der deutschen Missbrauchskontrolle angestrebt wird.Pflichtlekture fur alle Kartellrechtler Volker Emmerich Die Aktiengesellschaft 2011,724 Die grosse Starke der Arbeit liegt [a] darin, die grundlegenden Ausfuhrungen schlussig mit der Analyse von spezifischen Anwendungsproblemen der Missbrauchsaufsicht zu verbinden.

Das Hauptergebnis des Reformprozesses in der EU-Fusionskontrolle stellt der -More Economic Approach- (MEA) dar. In dieser Arbeit werden die wettbewerbsokonomischen Grundlagen des neuen Ansatzes intensiv rezipiert und kritisch gewurdigt. Den oftmals unterbelichteten normativen Implikationen wird ebenfalls breiter Raum eingeraumt. Die damit einhergehende zunehmende Einzelfallanalyse wird aus einer institutionen- und ordnungsokonomischen Perspektive grundsatzlich hinterfragt. Abschliessend werden die Wirkungen auf die Entscheidungspraxis untersucht. Im Ergebnis wird gezeigt, dass der MEA in der bisherigen Form zu kurz greift. Geboten erscheint daher eine Weiterentwicklung des Ansatzes mit dem Ziel einer umfassenderen Anwendung von okonomischer Analyse."

In Antitrust Law and Intellectual Property Rights: Cases and Materials, Christopher R. Leslie describes how patents, copyrights, and trademarks confer exclusionary rights on their owners, and how firms sometimes exercise this exclusionary power in ways that exceed the legitimate bounds of their intellectual property rights. Leslie explains that while substantive intellectual property law defines the scope of the exclusionary rights, antitrust law often provides the most important consequences when owners of intellectual property misuse their rights in a way that harms consumers or illegitimately excludes competitors. Antitrust law defines the limits of what intellectual property owners can do with their IP rights. In this book, Leslie explores what conduct firms can and cannot engage in while acquiring and exploiting their intellectual property rights, and surveys those aspects of antitrust law that are necessary for both antitrust practitioners and intellectual property attorneys to understand. This book is ideal for an advanced antitrust course in a JD program. In addition to building on basic antitrust concepts, it fills in a gap that is often missing in basic antitrust courses yet critical for an intellectual property lawyer: the intersection of intellectual property and antitrust law. The relationship between intellectual property and antitrust is particularly valuable as an increasing number of law schools offer specializations and LLMs in intellectual property. This book also provides meaningful material for both undergraduate and graduate business schools programs because it explains how antitrust law limits the marshalling of intellectual property rights.

Theoretical discussions among competition lawyers and economists on the approach to Resale resale Price price Maintenance maintenance (RPM) and Vertical vertical Territorial territorial Restrictions restrictions (VTR) have often caused controversy. However, commentators agree that there is a lack of comprehensive study surrounding the topic. This book explores these two forms of anticompetitive conduct from legal, historical, economical, and theoretical points of view, focusing on the EU and US experiences. The author expertly goes beyond the current legal practice to explain, among other things, what approach should apply to RPM and VTR, and why RPM and VTR are introduced in situations where procompetitive theories would not make economic sense, or do not apply in practice. The book takes account of economic values, such as efficiency and welfare, as well as other values, such as freedom, fairness and free competition. Scholars and students of law will find the book’s depth of legal, economic and historical analysis to be a rich contribution to the scholarship. This book will also be of use to EU and US practitioners, and enforcers dealing with RPM and VTR cases.

The regulation of innovation and the optimal design of legal institutions in an environment of uncertainty are two of the most important policy challenges of the twenty-first century. Innovation is critical to economic growth. Regulatory design decisions and, in particular, competition policy and intellectual property regimes can have profound consequences for economic growth. However, remarkably little is known about the relationship between innovation, competition and regulatory policy. Any legal regime must attempt to assess the trade-offs associated with rules that will affect incentives to innovate, allocative efficiency, competition, and freedom of economic actors to commercialize the fruits of their innovative labors. The essays in this book approach this critical set of problems from an economic perspective, relying on the tools of microeconomics, quantitative analysis and comparative institutional analysis to explore and begin to provide answers to the myriad challenges facing policymakers.

. . . a must-read for anyone wanting to study tying in more detail. . . the book offers a very thorough analysis of tying, together with some recommended improvements to the way in which tying is currently assessed under the EU and the US antitrust rules. Common Market Law Review Schmidt s Competition Law, Innovation and Antitrust is a superb introduction to the subject of tying arrangements and other bundled sales in high technology markets, principally as they are treated under US antitrust law and EU competition law. Schmidt thoroughly assesses the economics of such arrangements, the benefits they confer and the potential harms they impose, and then gives a positive introduction to the law. This is a comprehensive treatment of its subject and an indispensible aid to the competition law scholar or practitioner. Herbert Hovenkamp, University of Iowa, College of Law, US This innovative book assesses the hotly debated topic of tying from three different perspectives: competition law, economics and intellectual property rights. It highlights the faults and benefits of the current approaches to tying under EC competition law and US antitrust law. In the light of modern economic thinking, the recent review of Article 82 EC, and Sherman Act, Section 2, the author identifies a more economic approach to tying that moves away from the per se illegality label that has so far impinged on tying case law. Hedvig Schmidt recognizes the significance that tying can play on innovation and product development, and thus suggests a new approach which carves out a safe haven for technological integrated products to ensure continuous stimulation of innovation. With comparative assessments and investigations, this book is a must-read for academics specializing in competition law and theory, as well as practitioners and policy-makers of competition law and intellectual property.

More than any other area of regulation, antitrust economics shapes law and policy in the United States, the Americas, Europe, and Asia. In a number of different areas of antitrust, advances in theory and empirical work have caused a fundamental reevaluation and shift of some of the assumptions behind antitrust policy. This reevaluation has profound implications for the future of the field. The Oxford Handbook of International Antitrust Economics has collected chapters from many of the leading figures in antitrust. In doing so, this two volume Handbook provides an important reference guide for scholars, teachers, and practitioners. However, it is more than a merely reference guide. Rather, it has a number of different goals. First, it takes stock of the current state of scholarship across a number of different antitrust topics. In doing so, it relies primarily upon the economics scholarship. In some situations, though, there is also coverage of legal scholarship, case law developments, and legal policies. The second goal of the Handbook is to provide some ideas about future directions of antitrust scholarship and policy. Antitrust economics has evolved over the last 60 years. It has both shaped policy and been shaped by policy. The Oxford Handbook of International Antitrust Economics will serve as a policy and research guide of next steps to consider when shaping the future of the field of antitrust.
