Antitrust & IP: Google v. MSFT
The Antitrust and IP Battles to Control the Internet with a Focus on Apple, Google and Microsoft
The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the fierce antitrust and IP battles that have taken place in recent years between large high tech firms. We will discuss the main issues of contention in the high tech field (online search and search advertising, the licensing of standard essential patents, etc.), and the cases these issues have generated in the US, but also in other parts of the world. The focus will be on cases involving Apple, Google and Microsoft. No background in antitrust and IP is needed.
