Taking a global viewpoint, this volume addresses issues arising from recent developments in the enduring and topical debates over Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) and their relationship to Intellectual Property (IP). The work examines changing responses to the growing acceptance and prevalence of GMOs. Drawing together perspectives from several of the leading international scholars in this area, the contributions seek to break away from analysis of safety and regulation and examine the diversity of ways the law and GMOs have become entangled. This collection presents the start of a much broader engagement with GMOs and law. As GMO technology becomes increasingly more complex and embedded in our lives, this volume will be a useful resource in leading further discussion and debate about GMOs in academia, in government and among those working on future policy.
Taking an interdisciplinary approach unmatched by any other book on this topic, this thoughtful Handbook considers the international struggle to provide for proper and just protection of Indigenous intellectual property (IP). In light of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples 2007, expert contributors assess the legal and policy controversies over Indigenous knowledge in the fields of international law, copyright law, trademark law, patent law, trade secrets law, and cultural heritage. The overarching discussion examines national developments in Indigenous IP in the United States, Canada, South Africa, the European Union, Australia, New Zealand, and Indonesia. The Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of the historical origins of conflict over Indigenous knowledge, and examines new challenges to Indigenous IP from emerging developments in information technology, biotechnology, and climate change. Practitioners and scholars in the field of IP will learn a great deal from this Handbook about the issues and challenges that surround just protection of a variety of forms of IP for Indigenous communities.

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.
