Edited by Carlos M. Correa, Executive Director, South Centre, Geneva, Switzerland
Publication Date: January 2021 ISBN: 978 1 78643 630 6 Extent: 1,440 pp
The economic impact of intellectual property rights has been the subject of considerable debate and research. This engaging two-volume set compiles materials by distinguished scholars who have addressed, from different perspectives and in different contexts, how such rights help to shape goods and technology markets. The economic effects of intellectual property vary depending on the sectors involved, the level of development of the countries where they apply, and the policies implemented to govern their recognition and enforcement. Together with an original introduction by the editor, this collection provides essential reading for academics, students, professionals and policy makers interested in understanding the role of intellectual property in national economies as well as in an international dimension.
