[ Litigation ] as a Related Elective for those interested in Antitrust : Antitrust laws have been applied to both the communications sector and the broader IT industry when sectors of the industry have grown in market power. When a company's IP assets are the source of its market power, competitors may allege violation of the antitrust laws in the way those IP assets are commercialized. Students interested in an IP litigation practice should choose one or more antitrust courses. This course provides a more in-depth look at antitrust jurisprudence and may be taken as a follow up to Antitrust Law, or Intellectual Property and Antitrust Law.
General course Description:
We will examine in depth four pivotal antitrust cases: Polygram Holdings, Microsoft, Leegin and Oracle. We will study the record created in the lower courts and then analyze how the court came to the conclusions it did. Students will write an amicus brief and argue a motion for preliminary injunction or an appeal.
