Antitrust and Intellectual Property in Global Context
A Symposium in Celebration of the Work of
Lawrence A. Sullivan

February 23, 2007

Antitrust and Intellectual Property in Global Context
will celebrate the work of Professor Emeritus Lawrence A. Sullivan, author of the widely-cited 1977 antitrust treatise and numerous articles on antitrust, and co-author of a revised antitrust treatise and a widely-used antitrust casebook. Professor Sullivan has recently retired after a career in legal education that spanned 50 years at Southwestern Law School and at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law.

The symposium will focus on antitrust law, with particular emphasis on its interaction with intellectual property (IP) law. The opening panel will explore acceptance of antitrust law principles in the developing world. Subsequent panels will explore antitrust/IP interaction, including an exploration of that topic in both the U.S. and the European Union, and specialized topics such as Walker Process litigation and metered tying arrangements. Speakers include Professor Eleanor M. Fox of New York University School of Law and Professor Mark A. Lemley of Stanford Law School. Among the distinguished panelists are former FTC Chairman and now Georgetown Law Professor Robert Pitofsky and a roster of legal experts from around the world.
