Book Description

Originally published in 1998, Competition Policy and Intellectual Property Rights in a Knowledge-Based Economy is the ninth title in the Investment in Canada Research Series, reissued in 2019. The volume examines innovation and productivity improvement at the core of the Canadian economy. The book addresses how the application of well-designed government policies maximises incentives for innovative activity while maintaining vigorous interfirm rivalry in markets. This volume examines the United States, the European Community and Japan’s visitation of the treatment of intellectual property under their respective competition laws, and issues formal guidelines regarding enforcement policies in this area. This volume came as a consequence of research initiated by the Competition Bureau in co-operation with the Canadian Intellectual Property Office and the Micro-Economic Policy Analysis Branch of Industry Canada. It includes substantive papers authored by international academic and legal scholars, as well as select government policy analysts with experience working in competition agencies in Canada and the United States.
