The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) has filed an amicus brief in the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals asking the en banc court to grant rehearing to correct copyright rulings that threaten to undermine competition and innovation in markets that depend on computer software.

The American Antitrust Institute (AAI) today strongly criticized the district court’s rejection of the government’s lawsuit to block the merger of AT&T-Time Warner. “We are deeply disappointed that the judge rejected the DOJ’s strong case to block this perniciously anticompetitive deal,” said AAI President, Diana Moss. “Competition, innovation, consumers, and diversity in the media will, without doubt, suffer as a result,” she added.

Today, the AAI released the first part of its new White Paper series on Competition in the Delivery and Payment of Healthcare Services. Part I of this important and comprehensive competition analysis addresses "Consolidation in Provider and Insurer Markets: Enforcement Issues and Priorities.” The White Papers are co-authored by two of AAI’s Advisory Board competition experts: Thomas Greaney, Visiting Professor at the University of California Hastings College of Law and Chester A. Myers Professor Emeritus at Saint Louis University School of Law; and Barak Richman, the Edgar P. & Elizabeth C. Bartlett Professor of Law and Business Administration at Duke University.
