Intellectual property policy reform; fostering innovation and development.


Intellectual property policy reform; fostering innovation and development.

Ed. by Christopher Arup and William van Caenegem.

Edward Elgar Publishing


324 pages




In this collection for academics and students of law, business and management, and development studies, as well as policy makers, regulators, and intellectual property managers and advocates, Arup (business law, Monash U., Australia) and van Caenegem (law, Bond U., Australia) bring together 15 essays arguing that reforms to intellectual property should be based on the ways it interacts with new technologies, business models, work patterns, and social customs. They propose more rigor and discernment when deciding intellectual property rights and aim to encourage openness in uses to promote the coordination, circulation, and sharing of intellectual property, while considering such topics as patents, biotech companies, open license systems, technology platforms, competition policy, university technology transfer officers, high court judges, copyright, and collective authorship. Contributors, who are business law and intellectual property studies scholars from Europe and Australia, first presented essays at a workshop at Bond U. in December 2007.
