Misuse of dominant position in patent enforcement

Lidgard, Hans Henrik LU (2010) Licensing Executive Society,
Abstract
The Commission and the CFI stretched out in order to find that AZ abused its dominant position. It would have been interesting if the investigation had focused on whether AZ, in bad faith actually used its SPC in order to prevent competitors entry into the market. There were indications to that effect in the Commission decision, but the judgment did not discuss them. It remains to be seen whether the matter will be appealed. The lessons from Microsoft makes such an appeal more likely.
