Description
'One of the most detailed and insightful analyses of the important, but maddeningly vague, doctrine of patent misuse and its relationship to antitrust law… Professor Lim tackles this complicated topic in an innovative and effective way. In addition to thoughtful legal, economic, and policy analysis, he uses a comprehensive empirical survey and coding of all patent misuse cases through the end of 2012 and substantial qualitative empirical research through interviews with practitioners and judges about the perceived, and actual, metes and bounds of this slippery doctrine. He thus throws valuable light on the state of the conventional wisdom as well as when and how actual practice and case law departs from that conventional wisdom'
– Spencer Weber Waller, World Competition Law and Economics Review

This unique book provides a comprehensive account of the patent misuse doctrine and its relationship with antitrust law. Created to remedy and discourage misconduct by patent owners a century ago, its proper role today is debated more than ever before. Innovation and competition take place in increasingly complex environments that demand a clear understanding of where illegality ends and legitimate corporate strategy begins.

This unique book provides a comprehensive account of the patent misuse doctrine and its relationship with antitrust law. Created to remedy and discourage misconduct by patent owners a century ago, its proper role today is debated more than ever before. Innovation and competition take place in increasingly complex environments that demand a clear understanding of where illegality ends and legitimate corporate strategy begins.

The book is an essential resource for the curious, the expert and all those engaged in deciding what patent misuse means and should mean today. In addition to in-depth doctrinal and policy perspectives, it looks at patent misuse through the eyes of today’s leading practitioners, judges, government officials and academics. It also presents a qualitative analysis of modern misuse case law spanning 1953 to 2012. The result is a compelling account that lays out an important doctrinal, policy and empirical framework for future cases and scholarship.

Patent law students and scholars will find the author’s comprehensive study of popular and actual perceptions of the misuse doctrine a valuable resource, while practitioners, government officials and judges will appreciate the predictive value of the author’s findings.
