Abstract

All over the world, a “war” has erupted between advocates of strong intellectual property protection and advocates of strong competition law that would trump IP rights and bring more and cheaper medicines, smart phones and tablets to the market.  These battles are playing out in commissions and courts in the European Union and the United States.  The presentation will explain the patent/antitrust wars and how they are playing out, and will address the question —  what principles and perspective will best serve developing countries?
