Research Handbook on Cross-border Enforcement of Intellectual Property

Edited by Paul Torremans, Professor of Intellectual Property Law, School of Law, University of Nottingham, UK
The Research Handbook on Cross-border Enforcement of Intellectual Property systematically analyses the unique difficulties posed by cross-border intellectual property disputes in the modern world.

The contributions to this book focus on the enforcement of intellectual property primarily from a cross-border perspective. Infringement remains a problematic issue for emerging economies and so the book assesses some of the enforcement structures in a selection of these countries, as well as cross-border enforcement from a private international law perspective. Finally, the book offers a unique insight into the roles played by judges and arbitrators involved in cross-border intellectual property dispute resolution.

Providing a comprehensive approach to cross-border enforcement, this Handbook will prove a valuable resource for academics, postgraduate students, practitioners and international policymakers.
‘As you might infer, the book offers practitioners much to contemplate on this very contemporary issue, which certainly impacts on a wide range of individual and corporate clients.
If you are an IP practitioner, you need this book in your library.’
