We live in an age in which informational, expressive, and technological subject matter are becoming increasingly important. Intellectual property is the key means by which the law seeks to regulate such subject matter. It intends to promote innovation and creativity, and in doing so to support solutions to global health and environmental problems, as well as democracy and freedom of expression. It also seeks to encourage competition and economic growth, accounting
for its centrality to EU Internal Market and international trade and development policies. Moreover, it is of huge and increasing importance to business.
As an outcome, there is an ever-growing and substantial interest in intellectual property law across all areas of industry and social policy, including an interest in its legal principles, its normative and social foundations, and its operation and place in the political economy. The Oxford Handbook of Intellectual Property Law, (PDF) written by prominent practitioners and academics from the field of intellectual property law, and suitable for both an intelligent and a specialist legal readership but non-legal readership and non-specialist, provides a complete account of the following areas:
- The substantive rules and principles of IP;
- Important issues rising from the existence and operation of IP in the political economy and;
- The foundations of IP law, including its development and development in different regions and jurisdictions.
