This well-researched and highly topical book analyses whether the ever-increasing degree of sophistication in intellectual property law necessarily leads to fragmentation and inconsistency, or whether the common principles informing the system are sustainable enough to offer a solid and resilient framework for legal development.
The expert contributors explore the legal tools that are available to adjust IP protection to different needs and circumstances and how much flexibility exists to employ these tools. In providing answers to these and other similar questions, the book helps to resolve the fundamental question of whether one size can really fit all in the domestic and international context.
Uncovering the general matrix of IP, The Structure of Intellectual Property Law will appeal to researchers in law, economics and business, students in intellectual property, competition law and economics, as well as practitioners and policymakers.
