12:00 pm PANEL 2:  ANTITRUST AND INNOVATION
One of the most important questions facing antitrust practice in the coming decades is that of how antitrust should encourage and interact with innovation. There is a tension between policies that encourage innovation, such as granting temporary monopolies to innovators, and the antitrust laws that foster competition. How should these interests be balanced?
