Creativity, Law and Entrepreneurship addresses the relationship between law (institutions and regulations) and entrepreneurship (human activity with the aim of creating something new). Human activity is the essence of entrepreneurship. What unites law and creativity, work and play, is their shared origins in this activity. In this book, a varied group of scholars examine the building blocks of entrepreneurship by not only addressing the legal institutions that might regulate and promote enterprise, but by also exploring the very idea of creativity. The contributions to this volume provide a set of guideposts for understanding the connections among law, markets and human activities. They include chapters on: empirical evidence about creativity in the realm of patent, copyright, and trademark; exploration of our understanding of the transition from physical work to the mental work of inventing and creating and; examination of the legal process of patenting, contracting and transacting more generally. Collectively, the book explores the meanings and functions of creativity, and the role of law and legal institutions in promoting and sustaining entrepreneurial activity. Scholars, students and practitioners in entrepreneurship, law and the wide range of fields that are interested in, and benefit from, creative human activity will find this volume illuminating.
