View: 2122As its title suggests, this guide offers a broad summary of the law of intellectual property (i.e. patents, copyrights trademarks, trade secrets and a variety of other sui generis forms of protection for innovations and creativity) and the law of unfair competition (i.e. trademark infringement, passing off, trade disparagement, and deceptive advertising). It also touches on related fields of law (i.e. antitrust, consumer protection, regulated industries, and the law governing interference with contractual and noncontractual relations).
Möglichkeiten und Grenzen wettbewerbsrechtlicher Instrumente in vergleichender Untersuchung des US-amerikanischen, europäischen und deutschen Rechts
Author: Eva Hartmann
Publisher: Mohr Siebeck
View: 7839Das Verhältnis von Patent- und Wettbewerbsrecht zeichnet sich seit jeher durch Spannungen und Konflikte, aber auch durch ein gemeinsames Ziel der Förderung von Innovationen und technischem Fortschritt aus. Besondere Fragen an der Schnittstelle zwischen Patent- und Wettbewerbsrecht stellen sich im Zusammenhang mit Patenthinterhalten. Das Ergebnis eines Patenthinterhaltes, in den öffentlich anerkannte Normungsorganisationen und deren Mitglieder gelockt werden, sind patentabhängige Normen. Diese bergen ein erhebliches wettbewerbsbeschränkendes Potential, das in innovativen Märkten durch Netzwerk- und Lock-In-Effekte verstärkt wird. Das so vermittelte Lizenzgebührenpotential ergibt sich damit nicht in erster Linie aus der Erfindung, sondern aus der Festlegung der Norm. Inwieweit in diesem Fall Instrumente des Wettbewerbsrechts zum Schutz der Normanwender eingreifen, ist Gegenstand dieser rechtsvergleichenden Untersuchung.

View: 9108Professor Ghidini has long since made himself a worldwide reputation as a leading scholar. He is a profound critic of intellectual property protection that follows rigid property logic, and favours the functionalist competition/innovation logic. Innovation, Competition and Consumer Welfare in Intellectual Property Law is truly enriching reading. Hanns Ullrich, College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium We in the United States have much to learn not only from Gustavo Ghidini s careful analysis of modern trends in the European IP regime but also from his thoughtful development of the thesis that free competition should be understood as the overarching principle guiding both IP protection and what we call antitrust law. Rudolph J.R. Peritz, New York Law School, US and author of Competition Policy in America This authoritative book provides a comprehensive critical overview of the basic IP paradigms, such as patents, trademarks and copyrights. Their intersection with competition law and their impacts on the exercise of social welfare are analysed from an evolutionary perspective. The analyses and proposals presented encompass the features and rationales of a legal field in constant evolution, and relate them to increasingly rapid technological, economic, social and geo-political developments. Gustavo Ghidini highlights the emerging trends that challenge the traditional all-exclusionary vision of IP law and its application. The author expertly combines holistic, evolutionary and constitutionally oriented approaches, with the search for a rebalancing of the IP rights holders positions with citizens and users rights. This book will appeal to academics, scholars and lawyers specializing in the realm of intellectual property, competition and comparative law.

View: 6233Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Business economics - Law, grade: 1, University of Linz, course: Bachelorseminar, language: English, abstract: According to Black's Law dictionary, competition is the struggle for commercial advantage. The efforts taken of companies to achieve the respective commercial advantages can be - especially in a free market economy - ample. Let's illustrate this fact by the following examples: Suppose that a automobile manufacturer, incensed by a car magazine's constant ridicule of its cars, launches a rival magazine with a similar name and layout, copies the other paper's stories, lures away the employees, advertisers and subscribers of the other magazine by offering them higher wages and lower advertising and subscribing rates and finally succeeds in running its critical opponent out of business. Has the automobile manufacturer engaged in any unfair trade practices for which the owners of the car magazine may seek legal remedy? Or has the manufacturer acted in a permissible way to the magazine's attack? Furthermore, could the magazine be said to have engaged in an unfair trade practice by permanently ridiculing the cars and its manufacturer2? How can a merger between two or more businesses which are on the same market level and which manufacture similar products in the same geographic region influence consumers? What if two competitors agree in the artificial setting of prices at a certain level, contrary to the workings of the free market? Do consumers have legal remedies against companies who engage in false advertising or who distribute faulty and dangerous goods? The body of law which deals with these subjects is known as competition law, which can broadly be divided into Consumer Protection Law and unfair trade practices on the one hand and antitrust-law on the other hand. The bachelor thesis at hand takes the reader to a journey through competition law with a special insight into Unfair Trade Practices. After the stud

Its four comprehensive chapters encompass: basic considerations of definition, subject matter, enforcement, and applicable law: international provisions under the Paris convention, TRIPS, and WIPO model law; analysis of relevant EC directives and regulations and ECJ jurisprudence; and extensive discussions of the national unfair competition laws of all 25 Member States. For each Member State, specific topics covered include such considerations as the following: sources of law; competition law in a nutshell; regulation of advertising; direct marketing; sales promotion; risk of confusion; disparagement, defamation; misappropriation, imitation; impediment of competitors; and breach of the law. The author also provides a selected bibliography of sources for each country. It would be difficult to find a more useful analysis of European Unfair Competition Law than this systematic study. It is practical, thorough, clarifying, and readable, all at the same time. The author untangles the most complex of apparent contradictions with impressive skill. Copies of this book will quickly take their places on the working shelves of interested practitioners, academics, and officials throughout Europe.
