The Relationship Between Standards Development, Patents and Antitrust

From the very outset, there is a tension between the standardization, and both patent and antitrust law. Antitrust laws seek to encourage competition and stamp out anti-competitive behavior, with many theories and laws developed over time to largely regard industry cooperation as inherently anti-competitive.
