IT'S ONLY A GAME ...


Joint IPKat master Jeremy is making some notes for a paper he hopes to deliver around the end of the year on the relevance of game theory in intellectual property law. He is working on the theory that, if IP registration, licensing and infringement were subjected to game theory, we'd all get a much better idea how the system worked and why it's sometimes more worthwhile being an owner, sometimes an infringer. If anyone has any bright ideas or can recommend any prior art on this subject, he will be thrilled to hear from them. Just write to Jeremy here.

Game theory: why there are always winners and losers, whatever the state of IP law

PS Jeremy would like to thank those of you who wrote in with thoughts on summary judgment in IP litigation. His article is now about 3,000 words long and growing. When it's ready, it'll be available for preview, as usual.
