Competition & IP in the Digital Markets: A comparative & inter-disciplinary perspective
Following digitalization of even the most traditional brick and mortar sectors of the economy - such as books, retail and even education - a well-functioning internal market can only be guaranteed by ensuring competitiveness of the digital markets. The benefits of a digital single market cannot be under-estimated. Relentless innovation has facilitated this trend of digitalization and digitization. What role do intellectual property law and competition law play in this digital world? How can a more economic analysis strengthen our innovation policies to achieve a truly competitive digital single market?
In this conference, we explore this digital dynamic of competition and intellectual property law from an inter-disciplinary perspective. A well-balanced debate and meaningful discussion on innovation in the digital economy, calls for a discussion on the legal and economic perspective on digital markets, such as by an examination of the potential effects of (allegedly) exclusionary and exploitative conduct carried out by the multi-sided platforms.
