The influence of European Competition Law is global, and Competition Law and Regulation of Technology Markets takes a practical, integrated approach to competition law, which is becoming increasingly prominent in the technology sector in Europe - as demonstrated by a number of high profilecases such as Microsoft, Sony/BMG and Intel. The book focuses on the information, communication and media markets, that form the 'new economy'. It provides a coherent analysis of these various markets by considering the regulatory context, and by addressing the issues, and ensuing legal problems, that are common to them. These include; highfixed costs, the importance of intellectual property and standards, the impact of interoperability, and the prevalence of the network effect. The book considers how EU competition rules interact with regulation, intellectual property law and data protection rules, and goes on to analyse the application of competition rules in four fields; communications networks, industrial intellectual property, creative intellectual property, andelectronic commerce and services.. The book charts a clear path through this complex interaction of rules, and provides the competition law practitioner with the necessary tools to advise on legal problems in these sectors.
Kevin Coates is with the Directorate General for Competition, European Commission.
