Thomas Cheng Receives Award for Antitrust Scholarship (American Antitrust Institute)

Congratulations to Thomas Cheng who has been awarded the Best Antitrust and Intellectual Property Article by the American Antitrust Institute for his sole authored article, “Antitrust Treatment of the No Challenge Clause” (2016) 5 N.Y.U.J. of Intell. Prop. & Ent. Law 437. The article was selected by the committee for the 15th annual Jerry S Cohen Memorial Fund Writing Award for antitrust scholarship. The committee considered over 150 antitrust articles and books published in 2016. The Jerry S Cohen writing award was established in memory of a former law partner at the law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC. An award ceremony will be held at the American Antitrust Institute’s annual conference on 21 June 2017 in Washington DC. The article made a distinct contribution to antitrust literature by examining the harmful consequences of ‘no challenge clauses’ (clauses that prohibit patent licensees from challenging the validity of the licensed patent). It was also shortlisted for the Antitrust Writing Awards 2017.
