UNCTAD Workshop on the Interface between Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) and Competition Laws for Indonesian Competition and IP authorities
07 April 2014
Auditorium of the Directorate General for Intellectual Property Rights (DGIPR)
Jakarta, Indonesia

Key Issues

The interface of competition policy and intellectual property rights (IPRs) is crucial for the economic dynamics of developing as well as of industrialized countries seeking to promote innovation, technology transfer, a fair chance for competitive firms on the markets and affordable good quality products for consumers. 
 
IPR-related anticompetitive practices may involve collusion, suppression of incentives to innovate or exclusion of competitors. Some specific restrictions in licensing agreements may involve territorial restrictions or exclusivity, in violation of some jurisdictions’ competition laws. Major challenges include the imposition of abusive terms and the refusal to license or deal.
