An investigation of the triangular dilemma of strong Intellectual Property protection, contra high prices of medicines as result of the global Intellectual Property regime and finally the legal-economic rationales and discourses underlying Intellectual Property Law / competition law / intervention. The aim is to establish what constitutes anti-competitive practices such as excessive prices in TRIPS & EU Competition Law, by making the case for the excessiveness of prices as an anti-competitive practice in and out of themselves from a legal-economic / competition law perspective.

In the light of the Danish Competition Act and TFEU art. 101, the project examines the legality of joint bidding (consortium bids). The project entails both legal and economic analysis to shed light on the consequences of the current state of law including the legal uncertainty of the assessment of whether companies are competitors. In addition, the project seeks to provide a legal political discussion on how joint bidding could/should be regulated to create social value.
