  1. Reconciling Copyright with Cumulative Creativity

    Reconciling Copyright with Cumulative Creativity

    Giancarlo Frosio
    Reconciling Copyright with Cumulative Creativity: The Third Paradigm examines the long history of creativity, from cave art to digital remix, in order to demonstrate a consistent disparity between the traditional cumulative mechanics of creativity and modern copyright policies. Giancarlo Frosio calls for the return of creativity to an inclusive process, so that the first (pre-modern imitative and collaborative model) and second (post-Romantic copyright model) creative paradigms can be reconciled into an emerging third paradigm which would be seen as a networked peer and user-based collaborative model.

  2. Transnational Intellectual Property Law

    Transnational Intellectual Property Law

    Robert P. Merges, Seagull H. Song
    As companies and organisations increasingly operate across national boundaries, so the incentive to understand how to acquire, deploy, and protect IP rights in multiple national jurisdictions has rapidly increased. Transnational Intellectual Property Law meets the need for a book that introduces contemporary intellectual property as it is practiced in today’s global context. Focussing on three major IP regimes – The US, Europe and China – the unique transnational approach of this textbook will help law students and lawyers across the world understand not only how IP operates in different national contexts, but also how to coordinate IP protection across numerous national jurisdictions. International IP treaties are also covered, but in the context of an overall emphasis on transnational coordination of legal rights and strategies. Learn More

  5. Propertizing European Copyright

    Propertizing European Copyright

    Caterina Sganga
    With an acceleration in the last decades, the language of property, piracy and theft has become mainstream in copyright matters. Scholars have argued that this latent propertization has progressively led to the undue expansion of copyright and an enclosure of knowledge, causing clashes with users’ fundamental rights and EU social and cultural policies. Challenging the validity of such critiques, Propertizing European Copyright demonstrates that these distortive effects are only the result of mishandled property rhetoric and that a commitment to copyright propertization could enable a more internally consistent and balanced development of EU copyright law.

    Jeffrey Belson
    Certification and Collective Marks is a thoroughly updated and augmented edition of Certification Marks, first published in 2002.

  16. Grounds of the Immaterial

    Grounds of the Immaterial

    Niels van Dijk
    This book applies a novel conflict-based approach to the notions of ‘idea’, ‘concept’, ‘invention’ and ‘immateriality’ in the legal regime of intellectual property rights by turning to the adversarial legal practices in which they occur. In doing so, it provides extensive ethnographies of the courts and law firms, and tackles classical questions in legal doctrine about the immaterial nature of intellectual property rights from a thoroughly new perspective.

    Form in Intellectual Property Law

    David Booton
    This book sets out to expose, analyse and evaluate the conflicting conceptions of legal judgment that operate in intellectual property law.

Through an exploration of form, the analysis sets out to provide insights into how intellectual property law achieves a balance between various competing interests. Learn More

  19. Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property

    Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property

    Edited by Gustavo Ghidini, Hanns Ullrich, Peter Drahos
    The fields of intellectual property have broadened and deepened in so many ways, and at such pace, that there is a tendency for academic commentators to focus on the next new thing, or to react immediately to judicial developments, rather than to reflect more deeply on the greater themes of the discipline. Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property is a series of books designed to fulfil this role by creating a forum for essays that take a critical, long-term approach to the field of intellectual property. Volume 2 covers issues such as inter alia the current limits of knowledge and approaches to intellectual property, a functional account of intellectual property rights, China’s approach to innovation and intellectual property, the emergence of multi-layered IP-protection for designed objects, and the trajectory of increased protection for intellectual property.
