IP Literature Watch: June 2020

June 29, 2020

In this edition of IP Literature Watch we feature an assortment of recent papers, including one discussing the need for a “primarily property” distinction when IP and antitrust intersect. Also in this issue, we include a forthcoming article from our editor and co-authors on the legal and economic arguments underlying the continuing debate over licensing standard essential patents with FRAND commitments; an article on the relationship between competition and innovation; and a discussion of whether copyright law has ever aided discrimination on the basis of race, particularly in the context of commercially successful “mirror cover recordings” that featured white vocalists and musicians who copied without permission, competition, or attribution music created by African-American musicians and vocalists.
