Innovation, competition, standards and intellectual property: Policy perspectives from economics and law

The paper identifies the sources of regulatory complexity that lie behind the management of
innovation, intellectual property, competition law and technical standard setting processes. It
then introduces the remaining papers in the Special Issue. These papers focus on aspects of
regulatory complexity in the Australian and New Zealand context. Taken overall the papers
suggest that flexible standards of regulation are key to small and medium sized states being
able to manage the integrated regulation of innovation, intellectual property, competition law
and standard-setting.
