A report commissioned by the Canadian government cites work by a professor at The John Marshall Law School in Chicago. Professor Daryl Lim’s book, Patent Misuse and Antitrust: Empirical, Doctrinal and Policy Perspectives, has been used in an analysis prompted by Industry Canada, the microeconomic policy arm of the Government of Canada.
The report – Trolls, Hopping, Ambush and Hold-up: Emerging International Approaches to the Intersection of Competition and Patent Law – reviews how legal and policy developments in the United States, Canada, Australia and the U.K., may influence Canadian competition and patent law. Authors of the report note that Lim’s recent book provides “an in-depth discussion” on the doctrine of patent misuse. The report also gleans expertise from Lim’s article, “Misconduct in Standard Setting: The Case for Patent Misuse.”
The report acknowledges that the role of intellectual property and patents has shifted over the past two decades. As such, the study notes, “trends in competition and patent law and policy have been accompanied by a shift in thinking about the interface between the two regimes.”
Industry Canada is a division of the Canadian government charged with overseeing various economic and investment entities, including the country’s intellectual property system. John Marshall’s Lim is among an international group of scholars and experts cited in the report, including a member of the British Honorary Queen’s Counsel and a former Chairman of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
Lim is a graduate of Stanford Law School. At John Marshall, he teaches courses in intellectual property law and antitrust law. His articles have appeared in four of the top eight IP law reviews in the U.S., as well as in peer-reviewed journals and books in Europe and Asia. He was cited in a 2013 World Intellectual Property Organization Report on patents and the public domain. He also serves as a peer reviewer for The Yale Law Journal.
In 2014, Professor Lim was awarded The John Marshall Law School’s Faculty Scholarly Achievement Award an honor bestowed for “significant contributions to legal scholarship.”
