Björn Lundqvist, Timo Minssen, and Justin Pierce

  • Detailed discussion of case law from the EU and EU Member States, EU legislation, and European Commission notices.
  • Evaluates EU competition and IP law policy with comparison to corresponding developments in US antitrust and IP law policy.
  • Timely and up-to-date coverage of emerging issues and recent developments, such as the Pharmaceutical Sector Inquiry and subsequent case law; the Technology Transfer Block Exemption and TT Guidelines; and private action under competition law.
  • Offers comparison with the ICT sector, where issues such as patent and FRAND ambush have become important.
  • Includes useful guidance on how to deal with competition issues that arise within the intellectual property framework, such as access to patents granted in Europe under Art. 102 TFEU and in the US under exemptions to intellectual property law.
