Kritika (Essays on intellectual property) ; v. 4.
"The fields of intellectual property have broadened and deepened in so many ways that commentators struggle to keep up with the ceaseless rush of developments and hot topics. Kritika: Essays on Intellectual Property is a series that is designed to help authors escape this rush. It creates a forum for authors who wish to more deeply question, investigate and reflect upon the evolving themes and principles of the discipline. Bringing together leading experts in intellectual property, this fourth volume of Kritika tackles head on the most pressing legal issues that lie at the heart of the contemporary marketplace. The topics in this volume include the possible futures of IP; the challenges that the information age poses for rational code design and the protection of social interests; the changing purpose of unfair competition law; the Durkheimian basis for a more socially inclusive form of IP; the reality of IP on the legal streets of Brazil; the shortfalls of intellectual property as dominium and the issue of rights to machine-generated and automated data. With contributions from: Pedro Marcos Nunes Barbosa, Rochelle C. Dreyfuss, Severine Dusollier, Valeria Falce, Mark Findlay, Frake Hennine-Bodewig and Hans-Wolfgang Micklitz"-- Provided by publisher.
