MyCC has recently published draft guidelines on Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Law. The highlights provide for, amongst others, the following: 

 

  • exclusive licensing is not likely to infringe the Competition Act 2010 unless the licence is coupled with anti-competitive conditions such as price fixing and tying; 
  • in a case of newly developed technology, exclusive dealing arrangements may be found to be beneficial to the consumers in the long run.
