Description

Intellectual Property at the Edge addresses both newly formed intellectual property rights and those which have lurked on the fringes, unadmitted to the established IP canon. It provides a basis for studying and discussing the history of these emerging rights as well as their relationship to new technological opportunities and to the changing importance of innovation and creative production in the global economy. In addition to addressing the scope of new rights, it also focuses on new limitations to patent, copyright and trademark rights that spring from similar changes. All of these developments are examined comparatively: for each new development, scholars in two jurisdictions analyse the evolving legal norm. In several instances, the first of the paired authors writes from the perspective of the legal system in which the doctrine emerged, and the second addresses its reception in her jurisdiction.

  • Examines emerging intellectual property rights and defences, and provides context and analysis of hotly debated expansions or limitations of intellectual property
  • Comparative law perspective illustrates the development of concepts in common law and civil law jurisdictions
  • Historical perspective traces the origins of hotly debated expansions or limitations of intellectual property
