Trading in Knowledge

Christophe Bellmann Graham Dutfield Ricardo Melendez-Ortiz
Price: $ 49.95

An unprecedented surge in the scope and level of intellectual property rights (IPRs) protection has been engulfing the world. This globalizing trend has shifted the balance of interests between private innovators and society at large and tensions have flared around key public policy concerns.

Developing countries in particular face huge challenges when designing and implementing IPR-policy on all levels. As the policy options for these nations to use IPRs in support of their broader development strategy are being rapidly narrowed down, many experts are questioning the ¿one-size-fits-all¿ approach to IPR protection and are backing a rebalancing of the global regime.

Trading in Knowledge exposes and explains the massive issues at stake in IPR negotiations and treaties. It offers unique perspectives on IPRs and trade by a diverse range of developing country participants including civil society actors, farmers, grassroots organizations, researchers and government officials. Contributions from well-known developed country authorities round out the selections.

This comprehensive collection is essential reading for policy-makers, national level decision-makers, trade negotiators to the World Trade Organization, negotiators in relevant regional and international fora, intergovernmental organizations, environmental and development NGOs, scholars and students in law, politics and development studies, libraries and media.
