Cambridge intellectual property and information law ; 21.
Intellectual property law faces the challenge of balancing the interests of right holders and users in the face of technological change and inequalities in information access. Concepts of Property in Intellectual Property Law offers a collection of essays which reflect on the interaction between intellectual property and broader, more traditional, notions of property. It explores the way in which differing interpretations of the concept of property can affect the scope of protection in the law of copyright, patent, trade marks and confidential information. With contributions from leading and emerging scholars from a variety of jurisdictions, the book demonstrates how concepts of property can assist in shaping a conceptually coherent and balanced response to the challenges faced by intellectual property law.
