LEVERAGING IP


On a recent visit to Oxford, the city of dreaming spires and the home of Oxford University Press, the IPKat picked up a charming little book that does not seem to have received much publicity among intellectual property enthusiasts. Entitled Intellectual Property Rights, External Effects and Anti-trust Law, it is an objective version of what must surely be Ilkka Rahnasto's account of how, with a big enough portfolio of IP rights, a company such as Nokia can force its way into the lucrative US telecommunications market. Don't be put off by the fact that Rahnasto is a lawyer with Nokia: the book is a well-written and scholarly account of the subject, with well-referenced discussion of both US and EU law. What a shame it is not better known within the IP field.
