For decades, the debate about the tension between intellectual property (IP) and antitrust law has revolved around the question to what extent antitrust should accept that IP laws may bar competition in order to stimulate innovation. The rise of IP rights in recent years has highlighted the problem that IP may also impede innovation, if research for new technologies or the marketing of new products requires access to protected prior innovation. How this 'cumulative innovation' is actually accounted for under IP and antitrust laws in the EU and the US, and how it could alternatively be dealt with, are the central questions addressed in this unique study. Taking an integrated view of both IP and antitrust rules - in particular, on refusals to deal based on IP - the book assesses policy levers under European and US patent, copyright, and trade secrecy laws, such as the bar for and scope of protection, as well as research exemptions, compulsory licensing regimes, and misuse doctrines.
