Aftermarkets and Tying: The Legacy of Kodak
Presented by the Distribution & Franchising and Economics Committees

Since the Kodak decision over 15 years ago, many cases have raised new factual and conceptual questions regarding the legitimacy of aftermarket claims. The panel will review how legal and economic thinking has evolved since Kodak, discuss the prospects for new claims based on the decision, and assess the relevance of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to aftermarket cases.
