About the Author

Gustavo Ghidini, Professor Emeritus, University of Milan and Professor of Intellectual Property and Competition Law, LUISS University, Rome, Italy


'This book provides for a delightful reading for anyone involved in the field of IP law, either as a working professional or as an academic since it provides truly valuable food for thought in its innovative way of thinking.Thus the book, like the distinguished author, is a game changer, but it is on all of us to play the game.' -- Andrej Fatur, World Competition
'Professor Ghidini has long since made himself a worldwide reputation as a leading scholar. He is a profound critic of intellectual property protection that follows rigid property logic, and favours the functionalist competition/innovation logic. Innovation, Competition and Consumer Welfare in Intellectual Property Law is truly enriching reading.' -- Hanns Ullrich, College of Europe, Bruges, Belgium
'We in the United States have much to learn not only from Gustavo Ghidini's careful analysis of modern trends in the European IP regime but also from his thoughtful development of the thesis that free competition should be understood as the overarching principle guiding both IP protection and what we call antitrust law.' -- Rudolph J.R. Peritz, New York Law School, US and author of Competition Policy in America
