The book presents an impressive line-up of experts in the increasingly relevant field of law and economics, an area that has particular relevance to the issue of IP rights. . . an excellent collection of cutting-edge research. . . an essential read for those interested in the economic impact of IPRs. . . a highly recommended collection. Andrés Guadamuz, Journal of Intellectual Property Law and Practice Intellectual property policy has been framed too commonly in terms of refining and strengthening legal rights. As intellectual property grows in scope and importance, the limitations of this narrow approach have become all too apparent. This important collection puts the policy problems in proper perspective by assembling the work of leading scholars and researchers who examine intellectual property rights in terms of how they actually work in legal, economic, and institutional contexts. Brian Kahin, University of Michigan and formerly White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, US For a long time we have thought about IPRs as a policy instrument to avoid a "tragedy of commons". The essays collected by Birgitte Andersen show that in the XXI century economy there is another, and so far underestimated, danger: a sort of "tragedy of markets" where every knowledge or cultural expression becomes privatised. This will generate a greater knowledge and culture divide, with an increased corporate dominance. Those who are afraid of the dangers of exclusion and believe that open access to science, technology and culture will lead us in a more intriguing world will find convincing arguments and explanations in this volume. Daniele Archibugi, Italian National Research Council, Italy There is a growing need to understand the role of the regulation of intellectual property rights (IPRs), in order not only to achieve economic performance, growth and sustainable development at corporate, sectoral and global levels, but also to provide a higher quality of life for communities worldwide. Intellectual Property Rights is cutting edge in addressing current debates affecting businesses, industry sectors and society today, and in focusing not only on the enabling welfare effects of IPR systems, but also on some of the possible adverse effects of IPR systems. The main areas covered in the book are: the global commons in an era of corporate dominance and privatisation of the public domain, including science, culture, and healthcare under TRIPS the rationales for IPRs, and the importance of an appropriate design of an IPR regime in achieving its objectives opening the black box of IPR offices and critically reviewing how they affect economic performance in both theory and practice coordinating the institutions (state versus sector institutions, knowledge networks, innovation systems) creating and extracting financial and non-financial value from patents and copyrights. This book challenges the existing mainstream thinking and analytical frameworks dominating the theoretical literature on IPRs within economics, management, politics, law and regulation theory. It is relevant for policymakers, business analysts, industrial and business economists, researchers and students.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich BWL - Marketing, Unternehmenskommunikation, CRM, Marktforschung, Social Media, Note: 2, Technische Universitat Berlin (Fachbereich Wirtschaft und Management), Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Marketing, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Einleitung Mit der Erteilung eines Patents erlangt der Inhaber das rechtlich geschutzte Monopol zur wirtschaftlichen Nutzung der gesicherten Erfindung. Bis zu 20 Jahre lang darf er nun die Erfindung exklusiv verwerten oder Lizenzzahlungen durch Dritte nutzen lassen. Als Gegenleistung (und Berechtigung) fur dieses staatlich gewahrleistete Monopol wird der Inhalt der Patentanmeldung spatestens nach 18 Monaten durch das Patentamt offen gelegt. Dadurch wird die Erfindung allgemein zuganglich gemacht und kann Ausgangspunkt weiterer technischer Entwicklungen werden (INSTI-Broschure Nr. 9 2000, S. 7) . Nicht nur Technologieunternehmen sehen sich regelmassig mit der Fragestellung konfrontiert, wie sie mit eigenen Innovationen umgehen sollen. Nachdem die entwickelten Unternehmensleitlinien sich auch im betrieblichen Vorschlagswesen etablieren konnten ist dort eine Zunahme von Vorschlagen, Ideen mit dem Anspruch auf Schutz von Objekten und Technologien erkennbar. Im Zuge dessen wurde der Ruf lauter, Strategien zum optimalen Umgang mit Innovationen bereit zu stellen. Patentstrategien, deren Grundfunktion auf der Gewahrung von Ausschliessungsrechten an Erfindungen beruht, dienen der Entwicklung der wirtschaftlich erforderlichen Patentanmeldeaktivitaten in den jeweiligen Technologiefeldern. Neben dem volkswirtschaftlichen Nutzen der Patente, auf die hier nicht naher eingegangen werden soll, sind schutzwurdige Innovation von zentraler Bedeutung fur das Unternehmen selbst, sichern sie doch getatigte Investitionen (Patente und Rechte im Anlagevermogen) und haben Einfluss auf die Stellung des Unternehmens in der Region, am Markt, im Wettbewerb und selbst beim Personal.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich BWL - Unternehmensfuhrung, Management, Organisation, Note: 1,3, Europa-Universitat Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Veranstaltung: Seminar: Wissen - Das virtuelle Ol des 21. Jahrhunderts, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit wird dargestellt, inwiefern ein Kunstler seinen wirtschaftlichen Interessen im deutschen sowie europaischen Raum nachgehen und diese schutzen kann. Dazu werden im Kapitel 2 die Eigenschaften des Gutes Kunst betrachtet, wobei Kunst ausschliesslich als privates Gut definiert wird, was somit die Anspruche der Offentlichkeit auf Kunst ausschliesst (Kunst als offentliches Gut). Im Kapitel 3 wird die Funktionsweise des Kunstmarktes beschrieben und das Verhaltnis vom Kunstler zum Galeristen genauer beleuchtet. Eine institutionenokonomische Untersuchung folgt im Kapitel 4. Das Ziel ist, auftretende Probleme darzulegen und die damit einhergehende Bedeutung von Schutzmoglichkeiten zur Losung der Problematik aufzuzeigen. Daher wird die Analyse moglicher Schutzmassnahmen im Kapitel 5 anhand des Urheberrechts, insbesondere des Folgerechts, welches im Urheberrecht verankert ist, erfolgen. Als Teil des Rechts des geistigen Eigentums" (Immaterialguterrecht) schutzt das Urheberrecht nach 1 Urheberrechtsgesetz(UrhG) Werke der Literatur, Kunst und Wissenschaft. Zur bildenden Kunst gehoren Werke der Malerei, Bildhauerei und Graphik, obwohl heutzutage eine klare Unterscheidung in Gattungen fast unmoglich ist (vgl. Schoenebeck, 2003, S.28 u. S.36f.). Die Arbeit beschrankt sich auf die Malerei. Im Zuge der Globalisierung wird auch der Kunsthandel internationalisiert, daher ist es wichtig, das Urheberrecht auch auf internationaler Ebene zu beurteilen und damit verbundene Probleme darzustellen. Die Betrachtung wird sich hierbei auf Europa konzentrieren(Kapitel 5). Das 6. Kapitel soll abschliessend eine kurze Zusammenfassung sowie weitere relevante Faktoren aufzeigen. Neben den rechtlichen konnten auch technische"

Misuse is an increasingly important topic because of the central role intellectual property plays in our economy. The consequences of a misuse finding are severe: unenforceability of the patent or copyright involved, and defense to a suit to recover royalties in a license. The defense continues to arise in patent cases, has led to the dismissal of several recent copyright cases, and is now being asserted in trademark cases. The misuse defense thus represents a nexus of intellectual property and antitrust law and has the potential to affect business practices involving computer copyrights and other areas highly relevant in today's economic environment. This timely handbook covers the origin and development of the misuse doctrine, the debate about its scope and existence in relation to antitrust law, and its present status in patent, copyright, and trademark law. It also gives practical insights into how the doctrine affects both licensing and litigation practice.

This publication seeks to demystify intellectual property and to explain the whys and wherefores of the subject -unlike many other IP texts that concentrate on the what. Its message is that intelletual property is a power tool for economic development and wealth creation that is not yet being used to optimal effect in all countries, particularly in the developing world. It is a practical guide to using those intangible assets - such as knowledge, information, creativity and inventiveness - that are rapidly replacing traditional and tangible assets - such as land, labor and capital - as the driving forces of economic health and well-being.

The rising importance and continuous expansion of intellectual property protection quite naturally goes together with increasing concern about the legal and political foundations of such enhanced protection. Nowhere does the basic equation which underlies intellectual property, namely that the pursuit of short term private interest by the holders of such property will satisfy the public interest in the long term, become both more visible, but also questionable than at the crossroads between the grant and enforcement of exclusive rights with international trade. Catchphrases, such as patent protection and access to essential medicines, or access to genetic resources, benefit sharing and economic development, stand for fundamental tensions and conflicts between private property and the public interest. This book presents the contributions that have been made on these and related topics by a group of internationally renowned experts at a workshop held at the College of Europe, Bruges.

European Intellectual Property Law offers a full account of the main areas of substantive European IP law and a discussion of their wider context and effect. The amount and reach of European law, and decision-making in the field of intellectual property has grown exponentially since the 1960's, making it increasingly difficult to treat European law as an adjunct to domestic intellectual property regimes. European Intellectual Property Law responds to this reality by presenting a clear and detailed account of each of the main areas of substantive EU intellectual property law, situated in the context of both the EU legal system and international IP law, including EU constitutional law, the law of the European Patent Convention 1973/2000, and private international law. It draws selectively on examples from domestic IP regimes to illustrate substantive differences between those regimes and to demonstrate the impact of European law, and decision-making on EU Member States. This unique, thoroughly modern approach goes beyond a discussion of the provisions of European legal instruments to consider their wider context and effect. European Intellectual Property Law is the ideal guide for any student wishing to gain a full and critical understanding of the substantive European law of intellectual property.

Providing a comprehensive and systematic commentary on the nature of overlapping Intellectual Property rights and their place in practice, this book is a major contribution to the way that IP is understood. IP rights are mostly studied in isolation, yet in practice each of the legal categories created to protect IP rights will usually only provide partial legal coverage of the broader context in which such rights are actually created, used, and enforced. Consequently, often multiple IP rights may overlap, in whole or in part, with respect to the same underlying subject matter. Some patterns, for instance, in addition to being protected from copying under the design rights regime, may also be distinctive enough to warrant trade mark protection. Each chapter addresses a discrete pair of IP rights and is written by a specialist in that area. Facilitating an understanding of how and when those rights may be encountered in practice, each chapter is introduced by a hypothetical situation setting out the overlap discussed in the chapter. The conceptual and practical issues arising from this situation are then discussed, providing practitioners with a full understanding of the overlap. Also included is a valuable summary table setting out the legal position for each set of overlapping rights in jurisdictions across Europe, Central and South America, and Asia, and the differences between them.
