Target Audience: All law librarians who purchase library materials or who wish to learn more about the law of antitrust
Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will explore the scope of currently allowable speech acts under antitrust laws.
2. Participants will learn about the proposed concept of "expressive boycotts" as protected speech.

Experts agree that existing antitrust laws do not allow a concerted boycott by AALL membership. Recently, AALL members and leadership have expressed concerns over the limited ability of AALL and its members under current law to challenge publisher prices or other market proposals in a concerted manner. The speaker for this program has written an article, "Antitrust Censorship of Economic Protest," 59 Duke L. J. 1037 (2010), that directly addresses the concerns of both AALL members and the AALL executive board. Greene's article suggests the need for a new legal framework for protecting economic speech interests in the antitrust context. It will provide the foundation and framework for an introduction to and lively discussion of this topic.
