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 is an era of corporate dominance and privatization 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 law, economics, management, politics and regulation theory. It is relevant for policymakers, business analysts, industrial and business economists, researchers and students.Andersen is the author of 'Intellectual Property Rights Innovation, Governance and the Institutional Environment', published 2006 under ISBN 9781845422691 and ISBN 1845422694.
