About Intellectual Property Law and Policy Volume 11

This is the 16th Annual volume in the series collecting the presentations and discussion from the Annual Fordham IP Conference. The contributions, by leading world experts, analyse the most pressing issues in copyright, trademark and patent law as seen from the perspectives of the USA, the EU, Asia and WIPO. This volume, in common with its predecessors makes a valuable and lasting contribution to the discourse in IP law. The contents, while always informative, are also critical and questioning of new developments and policy concerns.

Praise for the series:

"This must be one of the most enjoyable and thought-provoking conferences in the IP field. The high quality of the speakers is matched by the intense, audience-led debates and challenges which follow."
The Honourable Mr Justice Laddie, Royal Courts of Justice, London

"Faculty for this conference are always well-known 'names' _ well respected leaders in their fields, speaking with a combination of candor and timeliness that is unrivaled by any other forum of its kind."
Honorable Marybeth Peters, Register of Copyrights, United States Copyright Office.

“...the transcripts ... are lively, sometimes provocative, mostly enjoyable and challenging. The collection is worthwhile partly because the transcripts appear to be verbatim, along with questions from the floor, comments from the chair, and welcoming remarks. The editor captures the substantive debates that formed the core of the conference, the tones in which presentations were delivered and discussions engaged in. One feels like a fly on the conference wall...[a] good, weighty [book] that [is] likely to endure as [a] useful reference [point] in copyright and other intellectual property debates.” –  Louise Buckingham, Copyright Reporter, Volume 29, Nos 1 & 2
