This committee monitors the laws, rules, regulations, and judicial decisions in the fields of antitrust law and trade regulation as they relate to intellectual property (IP) law.


Key Initiatives

  • The Committee focuses on competition issues involving intellectual property in the United States and worldwide.  In recent years, the Committee has focused on issues pertaining to standardization of technology, generic pharmaceuticals, and actions by the Federal Trade Commission and the Antitrust Division of the Justice Department.  The committee has participated in amicus briefs on competition issues, and publishes a newsletter for each AIPLA meeting with articles contributed by its members.
