MBHB Partner Kevin Noonan Co-Authors New ABA Book Examining the Intersection of Intellectual Property and Antitrust Law

The intersection of intellectual property and antitrust law is a busy crossway that shows no signs of abating anytime soon, according to the newly published Antitrust Issues in Intellectual Property Law, a multi-author book published by the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law. McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP partner Dr. Kevin Noonan is a co-author of the book.


With detailed case law in every area and covering 24 months of key developments, this is an important resource for new lawyers and seasoned litigators, jurists, and judges alike. It helps all intellectual property practitioners stay informed about the many ways in which antitrust law limits, disciplines, and counterbalances intellectual property law – and vice versa.


Organized in six chapters, Antitrust Issues in Intellectual Property Law examines intellectual property-antitrust issues broadly, from procurement, and acquisition to licensing and enforcement. It also highlights settlements under the Hatch-Waxman Act regarding disputes between brand-name and generic drug companies as well as focuses on antitrust issues affecting the enforcement of intellectual property adopted by a standard-setting organization. Included are appendices covering antitrust guidelines for the licensing of intellectual property and an extensive topical list of cases.


In addition to Dr. Noonan, other authors include attorneys Bradford P. Lyerla (Jenner & Block LLP), Shaun Van Horn (Jenner & Block LLP), Edward M. Roney (Coates and Bennett PLLC), and David L. Newman (Gould & Ratner, LLP).


Published by the ABA Section of Intellectual Property Law (ABA-IPL), the book is available for purchase on the ABA bookstore  for $149.95; ABA-IPL Section members can purchase the book for $119.95.
