Innovation under Section 2 of the Sherman Act, Doug Melamed, Stanford Law School

Innovation and Economic Growth and Competition Policy and Antitrust

Event Details

Hosted by the Information Society Project

This event reviews the economics literature regarding the effects of market power on innovation incentives. It identifies circumstances in which structural conditions warrant a presumption that anticompetitive conduct by a dominant firm is likely to harm or promote innovation and describes various ways in which consideration of likely innovation effects might support finding an antitrust violation or provide a defense of otherwise anticompetitive conduct.
