Abstract (Swedish)
The thesis examines to what extent dominant undertakings, within the evolving technology industry, are considered to use an anti-competitive conduct when strategically combining technical tying and different patent combinations. Such conduct may result in leveraging a position from one product market to another, leading to evergreening and possible abuse of such dominant position, in accordance to Article 102 TFEU. The EU patent system, is becoming more centralized, and may contribute to a better-balanced cooperation between competition law and patent law. The US perspective is considered in order to discuss whether potential guidance is needed within the EU legal assessment.
