Letter to DOJ Regarding Avanci Business Letter

I may have more to say about this in due course, but for now I will just note that on Monday "28 former government enforcement officials, professors, and public interest advocates" sent a letter to the DOJ's Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Antitrust Division, Jonathan Kanter, urging him to reconsider the Avanci Business Review Letter his predecessor, Makan Delrahim, issued in July 2020.  For coverage elsewhere, see this article on Law360, and Florian Mueller's critical take on the letter here.  For those who are interested, here are the US DOJ & FTC's January 12, 2017 Antitrust Guidelines for the Licensing of Intellectual Property, which discuss pooling principally in section 5.5.
