About the Book

Countries with innovative local industries almost invariably have laws to foster innovation by regulating the copying of inventions, identifying symbols and creative expressions. These laws encompass four separate and distinct types of intangible property – patents, trademarks, copyrights and trade secrets, which collectively are referred to as ‘intellectual property’.

This major new collection covers all aspects of intellectual property rights including history, purpose, moral rights, patents, trade marks and enforcement. In addition, the set considers the development of intellectual property rights, placing current practice within a historical and intellectual framework.

With a comprehensive new introduction from the editor that guides the reader through the work and places the selected material in context, this collection of essential articles will be an important research resource for both students and scholars in this field.
