Résumé de l'intervention :

In presenting pioneering work on behavioral economics and the IP-antitrust intersection, this talk discusses the role heuristics and biases play at the patent-antitrust intersection, and identifies specific ways that courts can take them into account. If antitrust law based on neoclassical economics were analogized to an app, behavioral economics would be a patch, not an overhaul of the status quo. A court that understands how patentees, licensees, consumers, and enforcers decide can more accurately contextualize and assess competing narratives and articulate more effective remedies. In other words, behavioral economics can help judges better understand how to use the rule of reason to achieve more dynamically efficient outcomes. It also addresses the criticisms against behavioral economics most pertinent to the patent-antitrust intersection and identifies four areas where behavioral economics can help courts reach better outcomes: (1) analyzing anticompetitive harm and procompetitive justifications, (2) empowering judges by enlarging the role of intent, (3) determining market power and lock-ins in aftermarkets, with lessons drawn from FRAND litigation, and (4) crafting smarter remedies.
