Description

Experience, as well as cyclical attitudes to intellectual property (IP), shows that there is no particular 'one-size-fits-all' model of IP protection. This comprehensive book explores the pervasive importance of IP in the new world of globalization and the knowledge economy. Each detailed chapter explores new and emerging IP issues from the perspective of development, examining how trends contribute to or hamper this process.
