Abstract

The interface between competition policy and intellectual property rights is of growing importance. A main aspect of this interface, addressed in the Technology Transfer Guidelines, is the type of licensing agreements that might have significant anti-competitive effects. This report provides an economic analysis of such agreements, focussing on cross-licensing, patent pools, grant-backs, pass-throughs and the use of licensing and IPR divestment as merger remedies
