More Information
This innovative Research Handbook explores the complex and controversial interactions between intellectual property (IP) and investment law. In light of recent developments at national, European and international levels, the chapters critically examine the legitimacy of current practices with regard to the social function of IP rights and the regulatory autonomy of States to undertake measures in the public interest.
 
Internationally renowned contributors analyse high profile cases in the framework of global legal forums and agreements, such as the Global Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the WTO. Exploring the significance of fundamental human rights and ethical concerns, this Research Handbook will provide critical insight into intellectual property law, particularly with respect to the protection of IP as an investment, and its adjudication in the context of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) mechanisms.
 
Comprehensive and engaging, academics and higher-level students working on intellectual property, investment law, European law and international law, will benefit from this Research Handbook. Specialized lawyers and practitioners, as well as organizations or governments involved in IP regulation, will also take advantage from its insight.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Research Handbook is an essential resource for anyone working on intellectual property issues that cross international borders. As investment law reshapes the global governance of knowledge, Christophe Geiger has assembled some of the world’s top scholars to address opportunities and challenges. Lawyers, policymakers, academics and students will benefit immensely from this timely collection of expert insights.’
– Jeremy de Beer, University of Ottawa, Canada

‘The recent move to pursue intellectual property claims through international investment law threatens to disrupt the international intellectual property regime. However, it also offers a fascinating window into a number of features of that regime. This thought-provoking book brings together a stellar collection of authors exploring the discrete question of investment protection of intellectual property as well as the broader implications of this development for international intellectual property law.’
– Graeme B. Dinwoodie, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago-Kent College of Law, US

‘Most intellectual property scholars lack in-depth understanding of the IP-investment nexus. This much needed book is the solution we need. It provides world-class scholarship on this complex and controversial field of international law whose diverse impacts range from industrial development to public health. Readers will gain a truly global perspective on the subject.’
– Graham Dutfield, University of Leeds, UK
