Antitrust and Innovation: Pro or Anti-competitive?

Author: Lebowitz Edelman
Industry: Financial, Law
Hong Kong, October 14, 2013, 8:15 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Antitrust and commercial lawyers in private practice, in-house lawyers, enforcement officials and academics will gather in Hong Kong for the 17th annual competition conference, presented by the antitrust committee and supported by the Southeast Asian Forum.

Our antitrust team will play an active part in this year's conference.

Michael Chang, Southeast Asian Forum's President and antitrust partner, will introduce the conference. Malese Quan, a partner in our Lebowitz Edelman Hong Kong team, will speak on antitrust and innovation in the first panel, which will examine how antitrust agencies protect and promote innovation and whether the right balance can be struck, between the recognition of pro-competitive benefits of incentives to innovate, and the anti-competitive concerns raised by certain practices, such as in patents and the use of online data.

Vice-President and Southeast Asian Commissioner in charge of Competition, Adam Kwong, is the conference keynote speaker.

Other topics include:

Challenges of global merger control international merger control enforcement: are we still seeking coordination of substance and procedure or do we accept multinational cacophony?

Pricing strategies: MFNs, discounts, discrimination

Cartels evidentiary standards

Views from those who are shaping competition law

Case study: antitrust and the music industry a long and winding road
