Research Handbook on Intellectual Property and Investment Law

About the eBook

This innovative Research Handbook explores the complex and controversial interactions between intellectual property (IP) and investment law. In light of recent developments at national, European and international levels, the chapters critically examine the legitimacy of current practices with regard to the social function of IP rights and the regulatory autonomy of States to undertake measures in the public interest.

  Internationally renowned contributors analyse high profile cases in the framework of global legal forums and agreements, such as the Global Agreement on Tariffs and Trade and the WTO. Exploring the significance of fundamental human rights and ethical concerns, this Research Handbook will provide critical insight into intellectual property law, particularly with respect to the protection of IP as an investment, and its adjudication in the context of investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) mechanisms.

  Comprehensive and engaging, academics and higher-level students working on intellectual property, investment law, European law and international law, will benefit from this Research Handbook. Specialized lawyers and practitioners, as well as organizations or governments involved in IP regulation, will also take advantage from its insight.
