Competition Policy and Intellectual Property in Today's Global Economy
Edited by Robert D. Anderson, Nuno Pires de Carvalho and Antony Taubman
The fast-evolving relationship between the promotion of welfare-enhancing competition and the balanced protection of intellectual property (IP) rights has attracted increasing attention in recent times. This book looks at the positive linkage between IP and competition in jurisdictions around the world, surveying developments and policy issues from an international and comparative perspective.
The publication has been produced at a time when economic policymakers and analysts lay ever greater emphasis on the generation and management of knowledge and innovation, and on mechanisms to ensure that the public derives the expected social and economic benefits from innovation and the spread of knowledge.
The book includes analysis of key issues by leading academics and practitioners from around the globe and a cutting-edge survey of related developments across both developed and developing economies. It also reviews current policy developments at the national level in the context of multilateral developments at the WTO, the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) and elsewhere.
