Antitrust policy for the licensing of intellectual property: an international comparison
by Richard J. Gilbert
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 19, No. 1/2, 2000

Abstract: This paper provides an economic comparison of two competition policy statements dealing with the use and licensing of intellectual property. These are the Antitrust Guidelines for the Licensing of Intellectual Property, published by the US Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission on 5 April 1995, and The Technology Transfer Block Exemption, issued by the Commission of the European Communities on 31 January 1996. Although the two publications deal with similar issues, they differ significantly in content. Their similarities become more apparent when they are considered from the perspective of the different legal environments of the United States and the European Union.
