Intellectual property has rapidly become one of the most important, as well as most controversial, subjects in recent years amongst productive thinkers of many kinds all over the world. Scientific work and technological progress now depend largely on questions of who owns what, as do the success and profits of countless authors, artists, inventors, researchers and industrialists. Economic, legal and ethical issues play a central role in the increasingly complex balance between unilateral gains and universal benefits from the "knowledge society". Economics, Law and Intellectual Property explores the field in both depth and breadth through the latest views of leading experts in Europe and the United States. It provides a fundamental understanding of the problems and potential solutions, not only in doing practical business with ideas and innovations, but also on the level of institutions that influence such business. Addressing a range of readers from individual scholars to company managers and policy makers, it gives a unique perspective on current developments.

Industry Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book consists of some 20 papers given at a symposium ... which brought together expert researchers studying the interaction between economic, legal and technological changes in the field of intellectual property (IP). ... the editor has done a useful job ... . This is a book for economists and lawyers with an interest in IP law and as collection of essays on different facets of IP policy, students in these subjects will no doubt find it useful reading." (David Newton, World Patent Information, Vol. 26, 2004)
