This is a rudimentary literature review aimed at documenting scholarly works focused on legal aspects of information and communication technology (ICT) standards. It was produced primarily via searches of SSRN and Lexis, and includes only material produced after 2005. The abstracts for each article are those provided to SSRN or Lexis by the article author, except in a few cases where there was no abstract I selected a paragraph from the article to serve as a summary. I organized the articles into the categories below, recognizing that the distinctions are arbitrary or potentially unhelpful in some cases (e.g., many “antitrust” articles also address “patent” issues, and the “public policy” and “regulation” categories cover similar ground). The categories do enable drawing one conclusion: while standards-related patent and antitrust issues have received a good deal of attention, the other areas identified below remain under-explored. Within each category the articles are listed in essentially random order.
