What Reviewers Are Saying
'... the book is a well-presented collection of scholarly articles on diverse, stimulating topics... The levels of explanation and detail vary from chapter-to-chapter and so the reader will probably find the book most helpful to consult for key topics of interest... The breadth of the book means that students, academics and interested practitioners should find areas that will appeal.' -- Frederick Chen, European Intellectual Property Review 'Together the essays cover some of the most topical issues in IP and related fields, and should therefore be of immense interest - and value - to any serious student of the subject.' -- The Commonwealth Lawyer 'It is an extremely thought-provoking book, crammed full of excellent papers which are genuinely original, and push forward the boundaries of their retrospective topics... the book is without doubt worth purchasing for anyone interested in IP theory, pharmaceuticals or traditional knowledge... the papers are of incredibly good quality... a few of those alone make the book worth purchasing. My impromptu rating system will therefore award it 5 out of 5 stars.' -- James Griffin, Communications Law
