Despite the title, this is not an undiscovered antitrust law column by Jane Austen – not that pride and prejudice don’t have roles to play in the case I’m writing about (although sense and sensibility may take a back seat). And to be sure, there’s an epic battle of wits going on; the parties have produced wonderfully well-written briefs, with more to come. But the setting is more Silicon Valley than the bucolic English countryside, the subject is not romance and the social order but innovation competition, and your clients have something real at stake in this story’s outcome.
