This Research Handbook provides a scholarly and comprehensive account of the multiple converging challenges that digital technologies present for intellectual property (IP) rights, from the perspectives of international, EU and US law. Despite the fast-moving nature of digital technology, this Handbook provides profound reflections on the underlying normative legal dilemmas, identifying future problems and suggesting how digital IP issues should be dealt with in the future.

Written by leading international academics, commentators and practitioners, the Handbook is organised into clear thematic parts that address the most prominent types of IP rights: copyrights and related rights; patents and trade secrets; and trade mark law and designs. Chapters analyse a range of key technologies and their impacts within these areas, including big data, artificial intelligence, streaming, software, databases, user-generated content, mass digitisation, metatags, keywords and 3D printing. The Handbook concludes by exploring issues of competition and enforcement that cut across all of these technologies, particularly in the light of online exploitation and infringement.

Scholars and doctoral students of law will find this Handbook an invaluable introduction and guide to the field of digital IP. Practitioners will also find its thoughtful coverage practically relevant.
Critical Acclaim
‘Digital technologies inevitably live with IP rights that protect them or stand in their way. This Research Handbook features an excellent line-up of renowned scholars, who each examine different digital phenomena through the lens of a particular IP right. The chapters are written with practical relevance and scholarly rigour, making it a useful resource for academics, legal practitioners, and other IP enthusiasts.’
– Stef van Gompel, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands

‘Professor Aplin’s very timely Research Handbook spans the entire spectrum of relevant intellectual property rights as well as unfair competition law, competition law and enforcement of intellectual property rights. Its comprehensiveness is enhanced by the great cast of authors from different jurisdictions. A must-read for all those interested in contemporary and hugely important digital issues affecting intellectual property law.’
– Estelle Derclaye, University of Nottingham, UK
