The interplay between intellectual property protection and antitrust rules in the communications industry is examined in this timely book, with particular focus upon the role of externalities in that interplay. There is substantial discussion of the innovation process and of how companies leverage their intellectual property rights in order to obtain market leadership. Particular emphasis is also placed upon how legal doctrines have developed to cope with these issues, and related economic analysis is also discussed.
The author makes good use of charts and diagrams to illustrate and explain some of the concepts explored in the book. For anyone interested in understanding some of the underpinnings for the approach to the protection of patents and copyright, this is a very worthwhile work. International Business Lawyer
