Over the past several decades, antitrust enforcers and the courts have come to recognize that intellectual property laws and antitrust laws share the same fundamental goals of enhancing consumer welfare and promoting innovation. This recognition signaled a significant shift from the view that was held earlier in the twentieth century, when the goals of antitrust and intellectual property law were viewed as incompatible. On April 17, 2007, the Federal Trade Commission and Department of Justice issued a long-awaited joint report on Antitrust Enforcement and Intellectual Property Rights. This report reaffirms enforcement policy set forth in the FTC and DOJ’s 1995 Antitrust Guidelines for the Licensing of Intellectual Property.
