This work examines the revised Technology Transfer Block Exemption Regulation and its accompanying guidelines.
The new edition has been fully updated to analyse the changes that the new Guidelines have introduced to existing competition laws, including bilateral licensing. The text reflects on the application of the Technology Transfer Block Exemption Regulation since it was brought into force in 2004, and presents a number of significant developments and judgements in the application of Article 102 to technology licensing. The book includes a chapter on the application of Article 102 to patent agreements and the "patent wars." The new cases analysed include the "pay for delay" cases such as Lundbeck and the cases where owners of Standard Essential Patents have attempted to obtain a higher than FRAND return by various means.
Written by two leading authorities in the field, the work offers a timely examination of the revised EU competition law regime for intellectual property licensing.
