This book critically reviews the recurrent debate on Intellectual Property law and policy in developing countries carried out in the last decade. It identifies the still unresolved policy issues and proposes alternative approaches that resonate with the needs for transformation of the economic and social reality of developing countries. Focusing on emerging economies in Asia, the work draws the wider lessons to be learnt by researchers, policy makers, legislators and the business sector in general and concludes by putting forward proposals for reform.
'A balanced and detailed approach to recent developments in intellectual property using East Asia as its focus and with special attention to the regulatory and enforcement regime in soon to be superpower, China.' Michael D Pendleton, Chinese University of Hong Kong, China
