This book examines some of the intriguing notions of the complex antitrust-intellectual property interface, focusing primarily on property and dynamic economic doctrines. The extensive discussion addresses antitrust patterns of unilateral behaviour and the intellectual property (IP) institutions of patents and copyright. The author provides a comprehensive evaluation of the intricacies of antitrust and IP from a broad legal, philosophical and economic perspective. In the economic context she considers the Chicago and Austrian schools of market theory, whilst on the legal and philosophical level she explores antitrust and IP doctrines through the lenses of property, philosophy of rights and history. In this way the reader gains a deeper understanding of the antitrust and IP crossroads, an area that is growing in importance as information plays an ever-increasing role in today's markets.
