Monopsony in Law and Economics

Most readers are familiar with the concept of a monopoly. A monopolist is the only seller of a good or service for which there are not good substitutes. Economists and policy makers are concerned about monopolies because they lead to higher prices and lower output. The topic of this book is monopsony, the economic condition in which there is one buyer of a good or service. It is a common misunderstanding that if monopolists raise prices, then monopsonists must lower them. It is true that a monopsonist may force sellers to sell to them at lower prices, but this does not mean consumers are better off as a result. This book explains why monopsonists can be harmful and the way law has developed to respond to these harms.

Patenthinterhalte in Normungsprozessen

Möglichkeiten und Grenzen wettbewerbsrechtlicher Instrumente in vergleichender Untersuchung des US-amerikanischen, europäischen und deutschen Rechts

Author: Eva Hartmann

Das Verhältnis von Patent- und Wettbewerbsrecht zeichnet sich seit jeher durch Spannungen und Konflikte, aber auch durch ein gemeinsames Ziel der Förderung von Innovationen und technischem Fortschritt aus. Besondere Fragen an der Schnittstelle zwischen Patent- und Wettbewerbsrecht stellen sich im Zusammenhang mit Patenthinterhalten. Das Ergebnis eines Patenthinterhaltes, in den öffentlich anerkannte Normungsorganisationen und deren Mitglieder gelockt werden, sind patentabhängige Normen. Diese bergen ein erhebliches wettbewerbsbeschränkendes Potential, das in innovativen Märkten durch Netzwerk- und Lock-In-Effekte verstärkt wird. Das so vermittelte Lizenzgebührenpotential ergibt sich damit nicht in erster Linie aus der Erfindung, sondern aus der Festlegung der Norm. Inwieweit in diesem Fall Instrumente des Wettbewerbsrechts zum Schutz der Normanwender eingreifen, ist Gegenstand dieser rechtsvergleichenden Untersuchung.

This thorough appraisal of competition law and policy from an international and comparative perspective covers the role of different international organisations active in the area, the significance of multinational enterprises and, in particular, the differences between US and EU systems. Taking examples from regions such as Africa, the Middle East and Asia, Maher M. Dabbah looks at the law and policy in developing countries and at a regional level, the internationalisation of competition law and the doctrines of extraterritoriality, bilateral cooperation and multilateral cooperation as well as the relationship between competition and trade policy. The book should prove useful to anyone who is interested in gaining an insight into the international dimension of competition law and policy. It is written in a language and style which make such a complex topic both possible to understand and enjoyable.

Der Schutz des Lieferanten als Marktgegenseite im Kartellrecht

Author: Markus Raeder

Publisher: Nomos Verlag

ISBN: 3845280336

Category: Law

Page: 362

Eine Pflichtlektüre für alle, die die Edeka-Tengelmann Fusion verfolgen. Und für alle Kartellrechtler, die mit vorgelagerten Märkten und Nachfragemacht zu tun haben. Neben dem Einzelhandel und Zuliefermärkten ist auch die öffentliche Hand eine typische Fallgruppe von Nachfragemacht. Der Autor beleuchtet den Schutz des Lieferanten im deutschen, europäischen und US-amerikanischen Kartellrecht. Ergänzend zeigt er auf, dass auch ökonomische Untersuchungen keine positiven Auswirkungen von Nachfragemacht nachweisen können. Qualität, Quantität und dynamische Parameter leiden. Auch spricht der normative kartellrechtliche Zweck für einen gleichberechtigten Schutz von Anbietern und Verbrauchern. Mit seiner Argumentation auf hohem wissenschaftlichen Niveau kommt der Autor zu dem Ergebnis, dass das Kartellrecht einen Schutz der Marktgegenseite bezweckt – unabhängig davon ob es sich um Anbieter oder Nachfrager handelt.

It explores both conventional analysis and examines how that analysis may be affected by behavioral findings.

Laws of Creation

Cass and Hylton explain how technological advances strengthen the case for intellectual property laws, and argue convincingly that IP laws help create a wealthier, more successful, more innovative society than alternative legal systems. Ignoring the social value of IP rights and making what others create “free” would be a costly mistake indeed.

Market Drive and Governance

Re-examining the Rules for Economic and Commercial Contest

Author: Ralf Boscheck

Publisher: Routledge

Category: Business & Economics

Page: 208

Corporate moves towards focused production and outsourcing, governmental reforms involving privatization and deregulation and the globalization of trade and investments promise large efficiency gains. However, the necessary coordination mechanisms call for regulatory approval and policy guidelines to safeguard these undertakings against abuse, which in turn are held up against the test of administrative efficiency and global regulatory competition. The question is: what standard will ultimately inspire policy, satisfy administration and be acceptable to parties inside and outside of a given commercial and economic arrangement? Ralf Boscheck looks to the various approaches of institutional and constitutional economics to complement traditional market models in shaping policies to govern increasingly complex market conditions. This book clarifies, integrates and applies diverse perspectives to salient issues of governance and presents them in an accessible manner. It will be an invaluable contribution to this field.

Economic Theory, academic policy analysis and public policy design are becoming more interdependent. Hence, the demands for close interactions between the policy community and the research community have been rising significantly. This book assesses how recent economic thinking has advanced under these influences. Furthermore, it evaluates the important contribution economics can add to the design and evaluation of public policy, now more than ever before. The study is of interest to policy makers, policy analysts, researchers and students of economics at all levels. The authors, which include many of Germany's most eminent economists, draw on their wide experience in research and consultancy to present a coherent view of where European economic theory stands today and how it can play a role in the management of the economy of the new millennium.

This is the 17th Annual volume in the series collecting the presentations and discussion from the Annual Fordham IP Conference. The contributions, by leading world experts, analyse the most pressing issues in copyright, trademark and patent law as seen from the perspectives of the USA, the EU, Asia and WIPO. This volume, in common with its predecessors, makes a valuable and lasting contribution to the discourse in IP law, as well as trade and competition law. The contents, while always informative, are also critical and questioning of new developments and policy concerns. Praise for the series: "This must be one of the most enjoyable and thought-provoking conferences in the IP field. The high quality of the speakers is matched by the intense, audience-led debates and challenges which follow." The Honourable Mr Justice Laddie, Royal Courts of Justice, London "Faculty for this conference are always well-known 'names', well respected leaders in their fields, speaking with a combination of candor and timeliness that is unrivaled by any other forum of its kind."
