Has sexism facilitated fertility-clinic price-fixing for eggs?

Professor Kimberly Krawiec argues that the "naked price-fixing of egg donor compensation is so unusual in the modern U.S. regulatory environment of unrestrained competition that ... the relevant question is how, given the government’s substantial enforcement resources and the presence of an active and entrepreneurial plantiffs’ bar, this buyers’ cartel has managed to survive unchallenged since at least 2000."

  • The Future of Video Competition & Regulation | William J. Baer, Keynote Address

    William J. Baer, Assistant Attorney General, Antitrust Division, Department of Justice gives the keynote address for Duke Law School's Center for Innovation Policy conference Friday, October 9, 2015, discussing the future of video competition and regulation. The provision of video programming is changing rapidly. The universe of video providers has become more diverse, as have the forms of video programming and the platforms used to distribute video. This raises a set of questions at the intersection of innovation and policy. Which business models show the greatest promise? Will video markets look different from Internet broadband markets, and will over-the-top video become a full competitor to current cable offerings? What do these competitive developments mean for the future of regulation? What, if any, role should the federal government play in regulating video competition? Which government entities should be involved, and what principles should guide them in choosing a particular regulatory approach? How long, if at all, should they wait to adopt that approach? Does Congress need to enact or revise legislation to allow for appropriate regulation? Leading experts from government, industry, and academia discussed these and other questions at the Center for Innovation Policy's Fall 2015 conference.
