About the Authors
  • Intellectual property law is a subject of increasing economic importance and the focus of a great deal of legislative activity at an international and regional level. This 2004 collection brings together contributions from some of the most distinguished scholars in this exciting and controversial field, covering the full breadth of intellectual property law, that is, patents, copyright, trade marks and related rights. The contributions examine some of the most pressing practical and theoretical concerns which intellectual property lawyers face. These include: expanding the boundaries of IP in the face of new challenges, such as appropriate legal responses to digitisation and new technologies; relations between developed and developing worlds; the relationship between different legal traditions in a world of increasingly shared international norms; and the relationship between intellectual property rights and other areas of law, such as contract and criminal law.

    • Contributions are from some of the most distinguished scholars in the field
    • Contributions tackle the most controversial and difficult practical and theoretical concerns which intellectual property lawyers face
    • Examines the full range of IP rights: patents, copyright, trade marks and related rights
