  • Description

    International Intellectual Property in an Integrated World Economy, Fourth Edition by Frederick M. Abbott, Thomas Cottier, and Francis Gurry, provides a comprehensive treatment of the international intellectual property system across the spectrum of intellectual property rights and interests. It introduces the institutional architecture at the multilateral, regional/plurilateral, bilateral and national levels. For each form of IP, it addresses the technical legal rules and illustrative jurisprudence, as well as economic and social welfare implications. Each of the authors has played a role in the development and implementation of the international rules, and they bring their experience to bear in introducing students to the field.
