The June 2018 CPI Antitrust Chronicle addresses issues related to the fifth annual LeadershIP Conference, “Enabling the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” which took place in Washington, D.C. on April 10th. The panelists at the conference came from the private and public sectors: regulators, academics and private practitioners. We are pleased to have articles from speakers at the LeadershIP conference from all of the panels.
A focus of the day-long conference featured ranging views on innovation policy, intellectual property policy and international antitrust policy. Notably, the intersection and overlay of IP and antitrust with respect to the development of standardized technology and the continuing “Great Patent Debate” were hotly-discussed topics.
We are pleased to open this month’s Chronicle with an interview with Makan Delrahim, Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust at the U.S. Department of Justice, who gave a keynote address at the LeadershIP Conference.
The next LeadershIP EU Conference will take place in Brussels, Belgium on November 7, 2018
As always, thank you to our great panel of authors.
