Professor Daryl Lim, Director of The John Marshall Law School’s Center for Intellectual Property, Information & Privacy Law, moderated an innovation panel discussion at the 19th Annual American Antitrust Institute Conference, “Antitrust at a Crossroads: Plotting the Policy Course for the Next Decade,” on June 21, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
The AAI conference featured four moderated panels that navigated key issues at the intersection of IP and antitrust, as well as a keynote address from Makan Delrahim, Assistant Attorney General of the Antitrust Division, U.S. Department of Justice. Other conference speakers included the former antitrust head of the DOJ, a former Commissioner of the Federal Trade Commission, the FTC’s chief IP counsel, and a top litigator on IP-antitrust issues.
“We are at an inflection point on how we should foster innovation, with powerfully persuasive forces tugging the application of antitrust law in completely different directions,” says Lim. “The finest minds in antitrust gathered for this important discussion, and I was honored to act as moderator.”
At the conference, AAI also presented Senator Amy Klobuchar, Ranking Member on the Senate Subcommittee on Antitrust, Competition Policy and Consumer Rights, with the 2018 Alfred E. Kahn Award for Antitrust Achievement.
