On The Pulse: Talks

In episode six of our podcast series on patent settlement agreements and competition law, Sophie Lawrance and Olivia Henry discuss the pro-competitive effects that may be associated with patent settlement agreements, the extent to which they are relevant to the assessment of whether Article 101(1) has been infringed ‘by object’ and why this matters.

Listen to our previous podcast: Restrictions of competition ‘by object’ – what does this mean and why does it matter?
