Book Description

March 2012 0857938975 978-0857938978
Individualism and Collectiveness in Intellectual Property Law embraces fundamental, eternal and yet very contemporary elements in IP law dealt with in all parts of the world. There are certain classic values embedded in the protection of human effort and the creativeness of individuals. This book examines the relationship of those values to the questions inherent both in individual creativeness in a collective setting, and in the tendency to build national, regional or global monopolies based on IP rights. The respect for original ownership, the occasional need for collective management of IP rights, the idiosyncrasies of co-ownership of rights and the ever present tension to be found in encounters between exploitation of IP rights and competition law are extensively exposed in this book. This innovative collection of work will strongly appeal to scholars and researchers in intellectual property law, as well as all those with an interest in the dynamics of the creative process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Individualism and collectiveness in IP Law.... Feb. 2 2014
Format:Hardcover
A COLLECTION OF ACADEMIC PAPERS FROM THE ATRIP CONFERENCE IN STOCKHOLM

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Published by Edward Elgar as part of their admirable ATRIP intellectual property series, this book should have an immediate appeal to intellectual property law scholars everywhere, certainly worldwide. ATRIP, by the way, stands for “The International Association for the Advancement for Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property”!

The book therefore assembles the work of… prominent academics from most countries around the globe, from China and the US to many European countries, all of whom were assembled at the 2010 ATRIP congress held in Stockholm. In keeping with the intention of the series, the book aims to represent a full and dynamic picture of contemporary high-level IP research in an international setting.

The fundamental aim of the congress – very reassuring to creative types we know -- was ‘to embrace fundamental , eternal and yet very contemporary elements in IP law’, with the emphasis on classic IP Law values aimed at protecting individual human creativity based on an attitude of respect for original ownership.

A mere glance at the table of contents reveals some intriguing subject matter intensively examined and clearly presented. Parts I and II deal respectively, with IP rights and competition law and individualism and collectiveness in patent law and in copyright law.

Individual chapters here include the necessity to collectivize copyright and the dangers (sounds frightening) and two perspectives on the Google book settlement.

IN INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY LAW - A COLLECTION OF ACADEMIC PAPERS FROM THE ATRIP CONFERENCE IN STOCKHOLM

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

ATRIP, by the way, stands for "The International Association for the Advancement for Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property"!

The book therefore assembles the work of... prominent academics from most countries around the globe, from China and the US to many European countries, all of whom were assembled at the 2010 ATRIP congress held in Stockholm.

A mere glance at the table of contents reveals some intriguing subject matter intensively examined and clearly presented. Parts I and II deal respectively, with IP rights and competition law and individualism and collectiveness in patent law and in copyright law.

Individual chapters here include the necessity to collectivize copyright and the dangers (sounds frightening) and two perspectives on the Google book settlement. There's a chapter offering the Chinese viewpoint on multinationals' global governance on the Internet and another on `virtual teachers: a copyright paradox.' These few examples should give you a flavour of the scope and interest of the book as well as the breadth and depth of subject matter.

For those involved in the field of intellectual property this book provides much information and food for thought based on what we would conclude is much original, thorough and extensive research by a very select and talented grouping of specialists in this field. If you are a specialist IP lawyer, the book is certainly interesting reading and, we would have thought, an essential purchase for your library.
