This chapter explores the nature and goals of competition policy, including some important differences between price competition and innovation competition. Specifically, it discusses antitrust's “common law” approach to competition policy; the relationship between antitrust policy, market structure, and innovation; and the uses and limits of antitrust to improve innovation. It is argued that IP law can take some important lessons from the road that antitrust law has taken toward reform.

Keywords:   antitrust law, antitrust policy, market structure, innovation, intellectual property, common law, antitrust injury
