Microsoft on Trial analyses the antitrust cases that have involved Microsoft on both sides of the Atlantic and offers a thorough and timely discussion on the regulation of unilateral behaviour in a topical sector.
This fascinating and highly topical book facilitates discussion on the difficult technical, legal and economic issues with respect to innovation, competition and welfare raised, through the span of more than a decade, by the US and EC Microsoft antitrust cases. It assesses their impact on the evolution of EC and US laws on competition and intellectual property in the IT sector and beyond.
The book, which adopts a multidisciplinary approach (IT, law, economics), benefits from the valuable insights of twenty contributors from both sides of the Atlantic, including those that were directly involved in the EC case. Practitioners, advanced postgraduates and academics will find this unique book an essential resource.
