Sagers Presents Antitrust Book at New Hampshire and West Virginia

Chris Sagers, the James A. Thomas Professor of Law, gave recent presentations to the faculties and students a the Franklin Pierce Center for Intellectual Property at the University of New Hampshire College of Law, and at the West Virginia University School of Law, concerning his new book, “The eBooks Case: United States v. Apple and Competition in America.” The book, which will be published by Harvard University Press in 2019, concerns a Justice Department antitrust action against the Apple computer corporation and several publishing firms for fixing the prices of electronic books. As he explains, the book really takes the case only as a case study, to examine deeper problems in the having of a competition policy at all, and as an explanation for why antitrust has so often been frustrated and disappointing.

Sagers has presented the book to a number of other faculties and groups, including American, Case Western, Villanova, and Elon universities, the New York Law School, and the Antitrust Sections of the American Bar Association and the New York Bar Association. He will present it at other universities in coming months, including the University of Kentucky in early spring 2019.
