Antitrust Issues in the Mobile Landscape


Any antitrust assessment must take into account the legal and economic context within which the relevant events have occurred. The goal of the presentation is to present the changing digital and mobile landscape and the context in which the so-called patent wars have erupted. The presentation will also, at a high level, analyse the relevant antitrust legal theories of harm and how those apply to the industry characteristics. Finally, possible solutions going forward will also be discussed.
