Description

This book addresses critical and timely questions in patent law from a truly global perspective, with contributions from leading patent law scholars from various countries. Offering fresh insights and new approaches to evaluating key institutional, economic, doctrinal, and practical issues, these chapters reflect critical analyses and review of developments in national patent laws, and of efforts to reform the global patent system and reconfigure geopolitical interests in ongoing multilateral, trilateral, and bilateral initiatives. The book explores patent law issues through the lens of economic development theory, innovation, international relations, theoretical foundations for the patent system in the global context, and more. It reflects and critiques a wide range of perspectives, comments on the associated implications for global patent regulation, and discusses controversial subject matter such as biotechnology, emerging economies, TRIPS compliance, access to medicines, and the possible value of competition law in policing patents on public goods, among others.

Professor Janis' contribution, chapter 9, is tilted "Patenting Plants."
