Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property

Edited by Peter Drahos, Professor of Law and Governance, European University Institute, Florence, Italy, Gustavo Ghidini, Professor Emeritus, University of Milan and Professor of IP and Competition Law, LUISS University, Rome, Italy and Hanns Ullrich, Professor Emeritus, affiliated research fellow, Max Planck Institute for Innovation and Competition, Munich, Germany

The fields of intellectual property have broadened and deepened in so many ways that commentators struggle to keep up with the ceaseless rush of developments and hot topics. Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property is a series that is designed to help authors escape this rush. It creates a forum for authors who wish to more deeply question, investigate and reflect upon the evolving themes and principles of the discipline.

'The three first volumes of Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property contain a deeply satisfying collection of in-depth doctrinal analyses, policy and case studies in all the major IP subject areas. With contributions from a distinctive array of scholars – all internationally recognized leaders in the field – Kritika presents rigorous and carefully considered topics that reflect upon the complex web of regulatory and legal responses to the challenges of globalized knowledge governance. These carefully curated volumes include a diversity of theoretical perspectives, empirical analyses and legal reasoning that illuminate existing controversies and provoke new approaches to pressing problems at the interface of law, culture, and technology. Kritika is an invaluable resource to IP scholars regardless of the stage of their career. The essays offer consequential insights, creative analyses and doctrinal refinements that will enrich the field and endure for the foreseeable future.'
– Ruth L. Okediji, Harvard Law School, US
