This topical volume brings together seminal papers which explore the interplay of intellectual property, innovation and environmental protection. It traces the emergence of intellectual property as an environmental protection policy lever and examines the interaction of market failures at the intersection of technological progress and environmental protection. Further, it discusses concerns that have been raised about the use of proprietary rights in the service of environmental protection. Finally it considers alternatives to intellectual property, such as subsidies and prizes, which seek to encourage advances in environmental protection technologies. With an original introduction by the editors, this important collection will be of interest to students, scholars and practitioners working in the field of intellectual property, innovation and the environment.
