Once regarded as an esoteric and arcane area of legal studies, intellectual property law is now recognised as a key foundation of the information society. Part of the legal system's response to the challenges of human creativity, intellectual property law seeks to balance rewards for innovation against the broader public interest. The contributors to this volume address some of the emerging controversies in this expanding area of law, including: property rights in data; cross-border infringement of copyright; dilution of trade marks; the expansion of the law of patents; and the interface between intellectual property law and the regulation of unfair competition. CONTRIBUTORS: The Hon Justice WMC Gummow, John Robinson, Thomas Marci Hamilton, John Simllie, Brian Fitzgerald, Sir Nicholas Pumfrey, Louise Longdin, John Adams, Graeme Austin, Susy Frankel, Sam Ricketson, Ian Eagles.
