Dispute in the Italian copyright sector

Lear assisted an Italian collecting society in rebutting a damages claim made by one of its competitors. The competitor alleged inter alia to have been denied access to information constituting an essential input to operate in the market and estimated damages accordingly. Lear economists developed analyses showing that the information was not essential, and that as a result competition would not be harmed as a result of a denial to grant access to it.
