Antitrust Chronicle® – IP on Tech’s Cutting Edge: LeadershIP EU

The November 2017 Antitrust Chronicle® addresses issues related to the inaugural LeadershIP EU Conference, which took place in Brussels on September 25th. 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 EU conference from all of the panels.

A focus of the day-long conference featured ranging views on how to “get it right” in innovation policy, intellectual property policy and antitrust policy. Notably, the intersection and overlay of IP and antitrust with respect to the development of standardized technology was a hotly-debated topic.

What are the best practices and policies to make sure these technologies achieve their greatest potential?
