This book is for lawyers and companies within the EU or non-EU companies trading with the EU. The author produces a concise and user-friendly guide to the Regulation. His approach is practical, suggesting solutions rather than looking for theoretical difficulties. In his analysis of the Technology Transfer Block Exemption Regulation and in his commentary, he tries to resolve some of the confusion inherent in the Regulation, or, where that proves impossible, to suggest an approach to a solution. He addresses the following questions: - Does a licensing agreement raise competition issues? - If so, does it benefit under the terms of the block exemption? - If it does not benefit, can it be made to do so? - If it cannot be brought under the exemption, what can be done? Stephen Kinsella is a solicitor who has worked in Brussels for the last ten years, specialising in competition law.
