International Conference on

“Interface between Intellectual Property & Competition Law”

Friday, 12th July 2013 New Delhi




Competition and Intellectual Property policies are bound together by the economics of innovation and an intricate web of legal rules that seek to balance the scope and effect of each policy. The interface between competition Law and the  intellectual property system has attracted increasing attention in recent years, as intellectual property rights have  gained increasing importance in the knowledge economy, and a number of countries have established or enhanced the role of national authorities entrusted with competition policy. Some have called these two legal principles two sides of  the same coin while others find them at odds.
