`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
Property: Cases and Materials features sweeping coverage in a single volume, from "old property" (such as the basics of real estate law) to "new property" including the latest developments in intellectual property law. The text provokes debate on fundamental questions such as the creation of property, information as property, collective v. individual rights, and property as related to other bodies of law. Its coverage of intellectual property shows how the law grows and responds to social and technological change. Designed for flexibility, stand-alone chapters can be omitted if time constraints require. Property: Cases and Materials includes appellate decisions, statutes, regulations, administrative decisions, law review articles, and non-legal materials as well as principal cases--Elvis Presley International Memorial Foundation v. Crowell; Panavision International, L.P. v. Toeppen; Dred Scott v. Sandford; and Popov v. Hayashi on the dispute over the Barry Bonds home run ball.
The Third Edition has been heavily updated with recent cases, including more cases from the 21st century than any other major property casebook. A thorough update of all existing materials includes improved coverage of natural resources law and intellectual property.
Thoroughly updated, the revised Third Edition presents:
This book was first published in 2006. Technologists have the ideas. Lawyers know the rules. But for business managers and investors, rules and ideas don't readily combine into a strategic vision. No longer is intellectual property (IP) just a necessary expense for large technology companies. Competing and succeeding in the marketplace requires an in-depth understanding of IP - its use as a weapon, as a shield, and as a monetizable asset. Yet in a world where fortunes can rise or founder on the strength of an IP portfolio, hesitation to enter this arcane, unfamiliar world still abounds. This book equips the business manager with a working, practical knowledge essential to creating and exploiting IP wealth. It shows investors how to evaluate IP strength and competitive value. With its results-oriented perspective and international focus, Intellectual Property for Managers and Investors is essential for those with decision making-responsibility at the interface where business and innovation meet.
This book investigates the potential need for an international convention on forests and establishes a multifunctional concept of forests as a cornerstone for international forest regulation. Accordingly, it examines a variety of international instruments pertaining directly or indirectly to forests and explores their entangled, fragmented nature. While contending that the lack of consistency in international law impedes the development of a stand-alone international forest convention, at the same time it argues that the lessons learned from fragmentation as well as from the history of forest discourse on the international level open up new options for the regulation of forests in international law, based on (new) concepts of coordination and cooperation.
The dramatic implosions of the centrally administered, non-democratic political systems in central and eastern Europe in the late 1980s have generated a body of research concerning the transition from public ownership, and the role of the market and other institutions in engendering good incentives for economic actors. The essays collected in this volume study property relations, their associated incentives and the consequent effects on welfare: the ubiquitous theme is that efficiency cannot be divorced from the distribution of productive assets.
