                  JOE SIMS

From the IP Magazine on the Web Website:

JOE SIMS is a partner at Jones, Day, Reavis & Pogue in Washington, D.C. Before joining Jones, Day in 1978, Mr. Sims held a variety of positions at the U.S. Department of Justice's Antitrust Division, including deputy assistant attorney general for policy planning and legislation and deputy assistant attorney general for regulated industries and foreign commerce.


    An IP Magazine on the Web online discussion among five distinguished practitioners on how (or even if) government can regulate anticompetitive practices in the digital age: "Since at least 1989, antitrust regulators at the Justice Department and the Federal Trade Commission have pursued Microsoft Corp., with mixed results. On Dec. 11, Washington, D.C., U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson issued an order temporarily restraining Microsoft from requiring computer makers that sell Windows95 with their systems to also include Internet Explorer, Microsoft's Web browser. The federal enforcement efforts raise a number of questions about the ability of antitrust law to adapt to the unfamiliar and fast-changing conditions of commerce in the computer age. A panel of experts recently discussed United States v. Microsoft Corp. and the future of antitrust law on Counsel Connect, an online affiliate of THE RECORDER. What follows is an excerpt from that discussion, reprinted with permission of the participants."
