Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Policy
Last Updated Date:   1 June 2021

5 Credits,  Semester 2

Course Description:
This module examines interaction between IPRs and competition policy from two broad perspectives: the endogenous operation of competition policy from within IPR frameworks (copyright, designs, trade marks and patents), and the exogenous limitations placed by competition law rules on an IP holder's freedom to exploit his IPRs. Students enrolled in this module are expected to have completed a basic intellectual property module - an understanding of what IPRs protect, the nature of the exclusive rights they confer and how they may be exploited will be presumed.
