Intellectual property laws are intended to create temporary monopolies and to provide economic incentives to the owners of thes... View full abstract»

    It is pointed out that the role of de facto standard setting organizations is relevant and important to true de jure standard setting organizations such as ASC X3 and IEEE. On the one hand, as a practical matter, a de jure organization may opt not to develop a competing standard, if it is satisfied that the de facto organization is providing a useful standard. As a result, a de factor standard set... View full abstract»
