Innovative Copyright

Greg Lastowka

For over a decade, Michael Carrier has been exploring the intersection of antitrust and intellectual property ("IP") law, contributing many articles that offer new solutions and approaches to the vexing problems confronting the law of innovation. Carrier's academic writing is situated in a voluminous scholarly discourse about the appropriate rules and goals of the laws of copyright, patent, and antitrust.

While Carrier easily could have written an "insider" tome for specialists in this area, his new book, Innovation for the 21st Century, is targeted at a broader audience. Carrier's book is directed at legislators, jurists, and opinion makers-as well as interested readers-who want to understand these questions and may play some part in legal reforms. It follows, given his broad audience, that Carrier faces some challenges describing the specialized fields of copyright, patent, and antitrust law.
