Strategic Uses of Antitrust Laws

INTRODUCTION

Topic: the innovation process facing the strategic uses of antitrust laws

Fields of research: Law Economics, Innovation, Competition…

Motivations:

  • An interdisciplinary project

  • A doctrine already developed in the United States… (BAUMOL W.J. & ORDOVER J. A. (1985): “Use of Antitrust to Subvert Competition”. Journal of Law & Economics n°28, pp. 247 ; MCAFEE R.P. & VAKKUR N.V. (2005): “The Strategic Abuse of Antitrust Laws”. Journal of Strategic Management Education, Vol.1, n°2, article 4 ; MCAFEE R.P., MIALON S. & MIALON H. (2008): “Private v. Public Antitrust Enforcement: A Strategic Analysis”. Journal of Public Economics, Forthcoming).

  • … but need to be adapted to the European Union

Theory methodology 1 2

Strategic Uses of Antitrust Laws

Theory & Methodology (1/2)

  • A major stake: Promoting and preserving the innovation process

  • Competition policies: Antitrust laws & IP laws

  • 2 Problems:  information asymmetries

  •  about the technology frontier

  • Theory: Competitive firms can take advantage of the uncertainty of the legal framework to subvert competition

  • A greater legal uncertainty in the UE than in the US

  •  Prevalence of antitrust laws on IP laws

  • Essential facilities theory applied to intangibles assets (Magill, IMS)

  • Two potential cases of strategic uses of the EU antitrust laws : VirginMega vs. Apple (2004) ; MLP vs. NMPP (2007)

    Back to the theory: What about the Economic Growth if a prevalence of antitrust laws on IP laws leads to a decrease of efficient investments?

Theory methodology 2 2

Strategic Uses of Antitrust Laws

Theory & Methodology (2/2)

  • A methodology in four steps:

  • Making a survey of the literature

  • Using the game theory framework in order to explain the legal conflicts resolution

  •  signalling & screening models

  •  Time as a cost

  • 3) Carrying out an econometric study in order to set out some stylized facts (key factors, success rate, frequency…)

  • ICT sector-based study

  •  Underline the conditions of an efficient coordination between horizontal and vertical authorities

  • 4) Analyzing a French economic case of a potential strategic use of antitrust laws: MLP vs. NMPP
