The Cambridge Handbook of Technical Standardization Law

The Cambridge Handbook of Technical Standardization Law: Competition, Antitrust and Patents, edited by Professor Jorge Contreras, a leading standards scholar, is now available. Here is a link to CUP's webpage for the volume, here is a link to the Amazon's page, and here is the book description:

Technical standards are ubiquitous in the modern networked economy. They allow products made and sold by different vendors to interoperate with little to no consumer effort and enable new market entrants to innovate on top of established technology platforms. This groundbreaking volume, edited by Jorge L. Contreras, assesses and analyzes the legal aspects of technical standards and standardization. Bringing together more than thirty leading international scholars, advocates, and policymakers, it focuses on two of the most contentious and critical areas pertaining to standards today in key jurisdictions around the world: antitrust/competition law and patent law. (A subsequent volume will focus on international trade, copyright, and administrative law.) This comprehensive, detailed examination sheds new light on the standards that shape the global technology marketplace and will serve as an indispensable tool for scholars, practitioners, judges, and policymakers everywhere.

Tom Cotter and I contributed a chapter titled Judicially Determined FRAND Royalties.
