This book provides a thorough treatment of the economic theory that guides and motivates the design and enforcement of American antitrust laws. Along with a comprehensive analysis of both horizontal and vertical antitrust issues, economic theory is used to evaluate antitrust policy through the examination of relevant legislation and landmark cases. Theory is discussed through its relation to policy issues, and in turn, the role of theory in the development of new policy is examined.

This casebook integrates a legal assessment of energy resources with economic and environmental issues, thereby encouraging thoughtful analysis of energy policy issues confronting the U.S. and the world. Historical and contemporary legal issues confronting a range of energy resources are surveyed, including water power, coal, oil and gas, electricity, and nuclear power. Particular attention is paid to the need to reduce consumption of imported oil by motor vehicles. The third edition of the book contains considerable material on problems presented by climate change, including legal issues confronting renewable power projects and various conservation measures. We believe that the material can be taught in many different variations, and we continue to teach it in a somewhat different order every time it is offered.

This book sets out governing statutes and rules at the beginning of each chapter and includes sample litigation documents where possible. The structure of the casebook is to move chronologically through a typical patent case. The book begins with discussions of whom to sue, where to sue, pleading requirements, discovery, and trial strategy. It then moves into substantive legal issues, including pharmaceutical litigation under Hatch-Waxman and other specialized infringement issues, such as infringing exports, infringement by multiple actors, and the extraterritorial reach of U.S. patents. The book also provides a primer on the new America Invents Act prior art provisions. The book next addresses issues surrounding remedies, including injunctive relief, contempt proceedings (including the Federal Circuit's en banc decision in TiVo v. Echostar), and damages.

Global markets have made antitrust law global as well. With mergers requiring approval in multiple jurisdictions, cartels in one nation affecting supply in others, and countries entering into treaties about the content or enforcement of competition laws, firms and antitrust lawyers no longer have the luxury of considering only the antitrust regulations of one nation. Antitrust law worldwide is also increasingly economic in its approach to analysing antitrust and competition policy. In the four yearssince the first edition, the globalization of antitrust law has continued apace. China has adopted an antitrust law. The EU has adopted a new Treaty, new guidelines on non-horizontal mergers, new regulations and guidelines on vertical agreements, and a Guidance Paper on abuses of dominance. In the US there have been important new Supreme Court cases (the 2009 Linkline and 2010 American Needle decisions) and the incorporation of modern economic approaches in the revised 2010 U.S. Merger Guidelines. This edition addresses new developments not only in the US and EU, but also in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Israel, Japan, South Africa, and South Korea. It also expands its coverage to add not only China's new antitrust law, but also the antitrust laws of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela. This is the most global and economically sophisticated antitrust casebook on the market. Addressed to students from all jurisdictions having competition laws, it will also serve as a useful reference for practitioners, competition officials, and policy-makers interested in competition law anywhere in the world.

This text organizes cases over four periods: a 25-year period from 1890 to 1914, in which most of today's issues were foreshadowed; a 25-year period from 1915 to 1939, in which the 'rule of reason' forced courts to investigate the actual consequences of business practices; a 35-year period from 1940 to 1975, in which the per se rule and industry concentration provided the predominant models for analysis; and the modern period of now almost 40 years, which is a synthesis of the second and third periods. The new Fifth Edition retains enough of the first three periods to provide important intellectual and economic context, but it expands upon, even more fully, the recent developments of antitrust policy. All major Supreme Court authority is covered, including the 2013 Actavis 'reverse payments' and Phoebe Putney 'hospital regulation' cases, as well as the 2010 Merger Guidelines and developments in lower court treatment of tying, bundled pricing and mergers.

In the information economy, sellers can distort the truth about their products, and online intermediaries have incentives to skew the facts they provide to buyers. Mark Patterson discusses ways data can be manipulated for competitive advantage and consumer exploitation, and shows how courts can apply antitrust law to address these problems.
