A much-anticipated new edition of this acclaimed work on intellectual property (IP) in its global context. With intelligent and insightful coverage of IP law from international and comparative perspectives this second edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded. This unique textbook presents the main IP rights, identifying their basic features and tracing their evolution up to the present day by reference to statutes, cases and international treaties. Examining the evolving activities in the international arena, especially debates and new IP rules concerning or impinging on creativity and innovation, consumer choice, trade, economics, social welfare and culture, this innovative textbook considers how these activities interact with developments at regional and domestic levels. Key Features include:

  • Presentation of IP law in a global context, uniquely organised by theme as opposed to by type of IPR for accessibility and ease of learning
  • a comprehensive commentary guiding students through international, regional and comparative IP law examination of the impact of IP on the international stage
  • an interdisciplinary approach considering the global influence of IP in respect of trade, development, law, economics, technology, human rights and biological and cultural diversity, providing readers with extensive knowledge of IP law's reach

    A key resource for IP courses with a global outlook, Dutfield and Suthersanen on Global Intellectual Property Law will also be of great interest to a number of global institutions.
