Intellectual Property And Human Rights

RRP $350.99

`Gathering together essays by leading commentators, Professor Willem Grosheide's timely book offers an excellent overview of the many significant questions of social and legal policy that emerge at interface between intellectual property and human rights. The relationship between intellectual property and human rights is, or should be, central to the thinking of everyone concerned with some of the most profound problems with which individual nations and the international community must now contend - including scientific, technological, and cultural development, public health, access to culture, education, freedom of expression, rights of indigenous peoples and the rights of creative workers. Providing a range of views on the human rights implications of intellectual property law and policy, this collection makes a valuable contribution to current debates on these critically important issues.' ---Graeme Austin, University of Arizona, USA

In the modern era where the rise of the knowledge economy is accompanied, if not facilitated, by an ever-expanding use of intellectual property rights, this timely book provides a much needed explanation to the relationship between intellectual property law and human rights law.

The contributors promote the view that this relationship should be central to the analysis of many of the profound problems that nation states and the international community encounter today, be they scientific, technological or cultural. The book is divided into sections covering the law and its trends, IP rights as human rights and human rights as restrictions to IP rights.

This stimulating book will appeal to academics, postgraduate students, national and international public authorities and those involved with international organizations in the fields of intellectual property law and human rights law.


Intellectual Property And The Internet

RRP $322.99

The past 20 years have seen a revolution in the way that we live, socialise and do business around the globe. Borders and barriers have fallen, giving consumers of digital information unlimited sources of data. The Internet has created a universe of convenience for the consumer. Just as society evolves, so too must the law. The sharing of online content creates challenges for IP law, well beyond the scope of the pre-digital era. Content containing intellectual property can be shipped instantaneously around the world with the click of a mouse. We face a modern problem that our technological world accelerates at a rate that can leave our IP framework in the dust. We have seen these examples played out in the music and film industries, as well as in the electronic book publishing industry. We have also come to see that the enforcement of IP rights in cyberspace gives rise to unique cross-border enforcement issues. Edited by Neville Cordell, IP partner at international law firm Allen & Overy, this guide contains analysis and guidance on how IP laws are applied to the Internet in 19 major jurisdictions worldwide, including chapters from leading experts at Herbert Smith Freehills, Norton Rose Fulbright, Clifford Chance, Quinn Emanuel and Kim & Chang. Chapters explore, on a comparative basis, the means of protection for a range of online content offered by copyright and database rights, trademarks and patents, considering issues such as infringement, liability, possible exemptions and remedies including disclosure orders against internet service providers. This exciting new title is essential reading for lawyers, in-house counsel, media and business professionals who must deal with the challenges of managing digital intellectual property and wish to understand how best to protect such works from infringement internationally.


A Companion To European Union Law And International Law

RRP $442.99

The relationship between European Union (EU) law and international law is complex and challenging. First and foremost, it remains an open question whether the EU can be understood as an international organization or some form of state order.

Featuring contributions from leading international experts in the fields of EU and international law, this indispensable Companion reveals both points of contact and critical differences. Seamlessly integrating the fields, these expert essays explore current jurisprudential debates in EU law and international law as they relate to such topics as trade, the European Court of Justice, human rights, the EMU, the environment, criminal law, and many others. Timely and thought-provoking, A Companion to European Union Law and International Law sheds new light on our current understanding of the legal relationship between EU law and international law - and on the very nature and function of legal powers.
