Standards development organizations, intellectual property, and standardization: Fundamentals and recent proposals

November 12, 2020

Joanna Tsai contributed a chapter for the recently released Report on the Digital Economy published by The Global Antitrust Institute (GAI). The Report explores the ongoing debate about the role of antitrust in the digital age and features contributions from some of the most influential economists, legal scholars, and practitioners across the global antitrust community.

Dr. Tsai’s chapter “Standards Development Organizations, Intellectual Property, and Standardization: Fundamentals and Recent Proposals” contains a primer on Standards development organizations (SDOs) and reviews the current policy debate on SDOs and intellectual property rights. She also summarizes some of the recent proposals that relate to standards and interoperability and offers her views on those proposals.
