About the Authors
  • Intellectual property (IP) comprises not only the valuable economic assets of private firms, but also the social and cultural assets of society. The potential impact of intellectual property assets is so great that it is likely to have a considerable effect on national and international economic development in the future. Despite this, the area of IP education is relatively new to many academic institutions, and principles and methods in teaching IP are still evolving. Against this backdrop, in this book a number of internationally renowned professors and practitioners share their teaching techniques in their particular fields of expertise, including what they consider should be taught in terms of coursework. The result is a valuable handbook for teachers and those wishing to get up to speed on international IP issues.

    • Practical information such as sample curricula allows teachers with little experience to prepare and organize intellectual property courses
    • Discussions of possible trends give valuable insight into how intellectual property may develop in the future
    • Suggestions for further reading direct those who wish to pursue the subject further
