This edited book brings together articles by leading international scholars from diverse disciplinary perspectives who focus on the legal, social, and cultural dimensions of intellectual properties - including patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, and rights of publicity. These articles employ a creatively eclectic approach to the study of intellectual property law and policy viewed through the lenses of traditional doctrinal analysis, historical perspectives, critical cultural study, and empirical examinations of intellectual property in action. The volume also directs critical attention to the significance of intellectual property in contemporary processes of globalization and political economy.The editor's introductory essay, What is a 'Law and Society' Perspective on Intellectual Property?, identifies and analyzes the major approaches to interdisciplinary law and society scholarship on intellectual property and identifies each author's contribution to this emerging perspective on what is an increasingly important area of law worldwide.
