The 1990s will be remembered as an era of prodigious expansion in world trade. Suddenly--for reasons encompassing irresistible new on-line technology, a vastly greater geographic reach, & sheer volume of goods & services--the old intellectual property (IP) laws & protocols long respected by international business became woefully inadequate. As a result, this masterful two-volume introduction to the new global regime of IP law fills an urgent need. Immediately recognised as the landmark work in its field, The International Intellectual Property System gives business lawyers everywhere the organised materials & expert commentary they need to protect IP rights on a global scale--and provides law students with an authoritative annotated survey of the relevant conventions, treaties, & laws both regional & national, as well as significant court interpretations in various jurisdictions. The book offers in-depth analysis of: . current international norms in the fields of patent, copyright, & trademark rights . national & most favoured treatment in the granting of IP rights . regulation of IP rights in the European Union (EU) . enforcement under international legal instruments as well as under EU & US laws . such emerging areas as governance of IP rights on the Internet & in electronic commerce.

As a ‘Specialized Agency’ of the UN, the World Intellectual Property Organization aims to be the premier global forum for intellectual property services, policy, information and cooperation. Whilst many individuals, firms, institutions and governments know and use WIPO services, the ways in which it functions, how priorities are set and decisions made are less well-understood. Indeed, a diversity of WIPO’s stakeholders and member governments express frustration that WIPO’s governance is not only complex but at times opaque. This practical guide offers a unique insight into how WIPO is governed, described in clear, readily accessible terms for policymakers, scholars and stakeholders. The guide reviews the origins of WIPO and sets out its current functions and activities, presenting a framework for analysing WIPO’s complex governance system. The core of the text will improve the reader’s understanding of WIPO in five thematic areas: • Legal foundations, mandate and purpose • Decision-making structures, processes and practices • Financial arrangements (such as income sources and the budget process) • Mechanisms for accountability and control of the Secretariat (such as policies on oversight, audit and evaluation) • Transparency and external relations. The text is accompanied by a number of valuable appendices, including key documents that have, to date, not been readily available to the public. Written by a leading WIPO commentator, The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO): A Reference Guide is the first comprehensive reference book to illuminate the nuts and bolts of WIPO governance. It will prove an invaluable and handy resource for those who interact with WIPO on any level, as well as to researchers seeking an introduction to how the organisation works.

ÔHIV/AIDS remains a major global health problem, despite the progress made in its prevention and treatment. Addressing this problem is not only a matter of more and better drugs, they need to be widely accessible and be affordable to the poor. This book makes, with a much welcomed interdisciplinary approach, an excellent contribution to understanding how the intellectual property regime can influence health policies and the lives of millions of people affected by the disease. The analysis provided by the various authors that contributed to this book will be of relevance not only to those working in the area of HIV/AIDS, but to those more broadly interested in public health governance and the role of intellectual property rights.Õ Ð Carlos Correa, University of Buenos Aires, Argentina ÔThis is an important, innovative and, at times, controversial collection. Inter-disciplinary in approach, this collection will have appeal to those concerned with the global injustice in the context of HIV/AIDS. Investigating the legal, political and economic determinants of access to essential medicines, this is thought provoking collection which will resonate with many in both the academic and public policy community.Õ Ð Bryan Mercurio, The Chinese University of Hong Kong This important book brings together leading scholars from multiple disciplines, including intellectual property, human rights, public health, and development studies, as well as activists to critically reflect on the global health governance regime. The Global Governance of HIV/AIDS explores the implications of high international intellectual property standards for access to essential medicines in developing countries. With a focus on HIV/AIDS governance, the volume provides a timely analysis of the international legal and political landscape, the relationship between human rights and intellectual property, and emerging issues in global health policy. It concludes with concrete strategies on how to improve access to HIV/AIDS medicines. This interdisciplinary, global, and up-to-date book will strongly appeal to academics in law, international relations, health policy and public policy, as well as students, policymakers and activists.

The enforcement of patent rights raises complex, and, from a private international law perspective, unique difficulties. Since intellectual property practitioners started to seek the consolidation of cross-border patent disputes, the interplay of private international rules has led to drasticchanges in patent litigation across Europe. This book analyses in detail both the European rules on jurisdiction (the Brussels Convention and its successors) and the choice of law rules as they apply to cross-border patent disputes, and will be essential reading for both intellectual propertylawyers and international commercial litigation specialists.At the jurisdictional stage, the basic question is whether the current jurisdictional framework provides a basis for the concentration of related litigation. For jurisdictional purposes, patent enforcement is a tort. Accordingly, cross-border patent enforcement attempts may generally be undertakenat the forum of the defendant's domicile, the place of the tort and, as far as provisional measures are concerned, another forum with a sufficient connection to the dispute. On the other hand, the application of the current jurisdictional framework to international patent infringement disputesleads to significant difficulties such as the pre-emptive effect of proceedings pending abroad or the jurisdictional consequences of a patent validity challenge. At the choice of law stage, this book provides a comparative overview of the rather unexplored issues arising in multinational patent enforcement. De lege feranda, it seems that, in view of the territorial nature of patents, a distributive application of the law of the protecting State (lex lociprotectionis) appears to be the most consistent choice of law rule.

Technology has affected a wide range of issues in our personal and professional lives. And in doing so it has opened the door for new legal questions, especially with regard to intellectual property and, more specifically, copyright. New legal questions have arisen with respect to the authorship of web pages, databases, computer programs, and, in general, multimedia work. Is this technology internationally protected? Can internet piracy be considered piracy? To whom does the copyright belong when more than one author exists? When is it necessary to resort to technical protection devices? By examining international laws, such as the WIPO treaties and EU law, this book offers a clear answer to these questions while focusing on how copyright does or does not protect new technology. It also examines alternative ways of protecting technologies that present the real possibility of appealing to patent and trademark law as well as an overview of the multimedia concept and the origins of copyright. This book's simple structure helps the reader to understand how to utilize current laws to protect one's work and offers an interesting and informative analysis of the subject.
