Book Description

Intellectual Property Issues in Nanotechnology focuses on the integrated approach for sustained innovation in various areas of nanotechnology. The outlook of this book is based to a great extent on the industrial and socio-legal implications of IPR in nanotechnology based advances. The book takes a comprehensive look not only on the implications of IPR in omics based research but also on the ethical and intellectual standards and how these can be developed for sustained innovation. This book attempts to collate and organize information on current attitudes and policies in several emerging areas of nanotechnology. Adopting a unique approach, this book integrates science and business for an inside view on the industry. Peering behind the scenes, it provides a thorough analysis of the foundations of the present day industry for students and professionals alike.
