The course is highly educational and detailed. The manner of explaining one particular thing by digging deep into how that thing came into existence makes this course really interesting. And the most entertaining bit is how the professor/educator never really lets you get bored, there are always certain stories along the path that just pull you back in.

I think the course is great. The material is more than it seems because it has many layers. As an economist and practitioner of competition policy I found most of the examples very useful to understand the reasoning of judges (if that would be possible). The discussion on copyrights and competition are of most use to understand the limits of both, since very often arguments on copyright come to place in competition cases in this kind of industries. However, maybe the best of the course is how Professor Picker is able to mix and mach history with current events. The notion that technological development is not something new and that many of the discussions we have today had been taken before is very important in order not to lose ground in the analysis. I would like to thank Professor Picker for his effort, I also would like to enroll in future courses and actualizations of the present course he organizes.

Excelente curso para acceder a las clases de un grande como es Randy Picker de Chicago.

Extremly passioned teacher, very informative course. If the english is not your native language, Randy's voice and language is very kind and understandable. Very nice. 10\10.
