In recent years, there has been a convergence of gambling markets and financial markets. This paper addresses this convergence by identifying legal issues relating to price data within these markets. It will be observed that these price data issues create tension between the regulatory frameworks of intellectual property law and competition law. The resolution of this tension must simultaneously take account of the theoretical foundation of intellectual property and be consistent with competition law and policy. In seeking to provide a resolution to this tension, the thesis will demonstrate that 'regulatory convergence' sits alongside 'market convergence'.
