The Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission revised the "Antitrust Guidelines for Licensing Intellectual Property" in 1995. In it, the agencies described the circumstances under which licensing intellectual property may give rise to antitrust concerns. The contrary result in two similar intellectual property rights cases, "Eastman Kodak Co. v. Image Technical Services" and "Copier Services Unlimited. v. The Xerox Corporation", illustrate a need for further revision to the previously established Guidelines.
