Nordic perspectives on competition in innovation markets

(2013)
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Undetermined

The Nordic countries have been slow EU integrators. Some of them are not even members of the Union. Little does it matter. Competition law has been at the forefront of the vivid Nordic academic debate for years. A result: The establishment of a solid network among researchers at the Nordic universities.

In 2012 the Network came together in Lund, Sweden to address how trade and development is affected by dynamic, rather than static competition. This area has been topical for some years now and is especially active at the crossroads between competition and IPR legislation. Currently some ten Nordic PhD students are addressing this matter from different perspectives.

Abstract in Undetermined

The Nordic countries have been slow EU integrators. Some of them are not even members of the Union. Little does it matter. Competition law has been at the forefront of the vivid Nordic academic debate for years. A result: The establishment of a solid network among researchers at the Nordic universities.

In 2012 the Network came together in Lund, Sweden to address how trade and development is affected by dynamic, rather than static competition. This area has been topical for some years now and is especially active at the crossroads between competition and IPR legislation. Currently some ten Nordic PhD students are addressing this matter from different perspectives.

In this book senior researchers take a look at this dialogue and discuss the matter from a number of perspectives in the search for a workable balance. Is it all just a question of giving priority to competition law in case of conflict? How does the Technology Transfer Regulation fit into the picture and has it done its job and achieved its objectives with respect to trade in goods? Do similar types of problems appear in the provision of services?

From this more general helicopter approach the contributors also address some specific and current concerns like price squeeze in the telecom service sector and standardization in the computer technology field. The contributors also cover developments in the health care industry, which constitute matters of concern to all, especially in relation to generic competition and conflicts with applicable pharmaceutical legislation. The question of who controls “follow on inventions” in the licensing arena is of common interest and a matter of crucial interest for any technology transfer activity and therefore deserves special attention.

The contributors to this book are all leading competition law researchers in the Nordic countries. The book ends with a forward looking chapter by an EU Commission official (of course, acting in his own capacity) from a regulatory perspective who discusses the future of the EU dynamic process as expressed in the Europe 2020 Strategy.
