Carrier: Classic Antitrust/IP Scholarship

The next contribution to the Classic Patent Scholarship Project is from Professor Michael Carrier (Rutgers Camden), a leading expert on the intersection of IP and antitrust. His impressive scholarly portfolio includes the influential Unraveling the Patent-Antitrust Paradox, which was cited by the Supreme Court in Bilski and (perhaps less notably) summarized on this blog two years ago. For a thoughtful overview of how patents, copyright, and antitrust can work together to foster innovation, I also highly recommend his 2009 book, Innovation for the 21st Century: Harnessing the Power of Intellectual Property and Antitrust Law (download the introduction or check out this excellent symposium).

Professor Carrier recently selected 14 of the most important articles and book chapters on the intersection of antitrust and IP for the edited volume Intellectual Property and Competition; below he has supplemented this list with some additional works. Many of these pieces are past my (arbitrary) 2000 cutoff for "classic works," so I will only add the older ones to my compiled list, but I think this post will be an excellent starting point for scholars who want to delve into this important field.
