Print This Post Print This Post

A much-referenced book now out in paperback remains one of the few books with a broad social sciences perspective on current conflicts over intellectual property policy, with a focus on the national level set within the context of shifting global patterns.

The book, “Politics of Intellectual Property: Contestation over the Ownership, Use, and Control of Knowledge and Information” was edited by Sebastian Haunss and Kenneth C. Shadlen.

It contains analyses from developed and developing countries written by a range of experts who look at business, farmers, social movements, legal communities, state officials, transnational enterprises and international organisations. Discussions cover key policy areas such as public health, digital rights, indigenous knowledge, and genetic resources.

The book is available from publisher Edward Elgar here.
