In addition to adding Jay Dratler, one of America?s leading authorities on licensing intellectual property, and Barbara Wrigley, a practitioner with many years experience in the field, to the list of co-authors, the Second Edition of Intellectual Property Licensing in the Information Age (formerly Licensing Intellectual Property in the Digital Age) has been largely redone. Keeping the same basic structure, each chapter has been updated with the most current developments in licensing law. Chapter 2 now works as a much more efficient introduction to intellectual property. Additionally, with the inclusion of the Uniform Electronic Transactions Act in Chapter 8 and an entirely new chapter on Biotechnology, the book is now the most up-to-date and authoritative textbook available.The book emphasizes application in actual situations, with chapters designed to simulate the work flow a lawyer is likely to face in the negotiation, formation, and enforcement of an intellectual property license. A teacher?s manual will be available.

Imagine sending a magazine article to 10 friends-making photocopies, putting them in envelopes, adding postage, and mailing them. Now consider how much easier it is to send that article to those 10 friends as an attachment to e-mail. Or to post the article on your own site on the World Wide Web. The ease of modifying or copying digitized material and the proliferation of computer networking have raised fundamental questions about copyright and patent--intellectual property protections rooted in the U.S. Constitution. Hailed for quick and convenient access to a world of material, the Internet also poses serious economic issues for those who create and market that material. If people can so easily send music on the Internet for free, for example, who will pay for music? This book presents the multiple facets of digitized intellectual property, defining terms, identifying key issues, and exploring alternatives. It follows the complex threads of law, business, incentives to creators, the American tradition of access to information, the international context, and the nature of human behavior. Technology is explored for its ability to transfer content and its potential to protect intellectual property rights. The book proposes research and policy recommendations as well as principles for policymaking.

This monograph pays special attention to the intellectual property of copyrights and patents. It examines how legal parameters, competing interests, and technological advances take shape in economic, political, and social contexts that require colleges and universities make intellectual property central to their operations. Economic, political and social forces are redefining knowledge as property that can be owned, and institutions of higher education, as producers of knowledge, are central participants of this phenomenon. Debates about intellectual property are rampant, some arguing that knowledge should not become a commodity for exchange, others than intellectual property fosters innovation in society. What is not debatable is the importance of the law for resolving disputes about intellectual property. Today, the evolving legal context association with intellectual property and technological advancements have created competing interests and demands from individuals, institutions and even nation. The law is often the realm in which these interests and disputes take place, with more or less satisfying results. Colleges and universities must grapple with not only complex legal issues but also the philosophical and political consequences associated with the conversation of intellectual acts into property. This is the fourth issue in the 34th volume of the Jossey-Bass series ASHE Higher Education Report. Each monograph in the series is the definitive analysis of a tough higher education problem, based on thorough research of pertinent literature and institutional experiences. Topics are identified by a national survey. Noted practitioners and scholars are then commissioned to write the reports, with experts providing critical reviews of each manuscript before publication.

In today's knowledge-based economy, intellectual property protection has taken on new proportions, with profound implications for business, law, policy, and culture. Featuring insights from leading scholars and practitioners, this book brings new clarity to the issues, providing rigorous analysis, historical context, and emerging practical applications from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Volume 1 focuses on protections to novels, films, computer programs, and other creative products. Volume 2 explains the fundamental protections to inventors. Volume 3 looks at the protections to distinctive names, symbols, and signs. Volume 4 takes the discussion to the global level, addressing not only the enforcement of IP protections across borders, but also their implications for international trade and investment, economic development, national sovereignty, human rights, and public health.

This book explores the economic analysis of intellectual property law, with a special emphasis on the Law and Economics of informational goods in light of the past decade’s technological revolution. In recent years there has been massive growth in the Law and Economics literature focusing on intellectual property, on both normative and positive levels of analysis. The economic approach to intellectual property is often described as a monolithic, coherent approach that may differ only as it is applied to a particular case. Yet the growing literature of Law and Economics in intellectual property does not speak in one voice. The economic discourse used in legal scholarship and in policy-making encompasses several strands, each reflecting a fundamentally different approach to the economics of informational works, and each grounded in a different ideology or methodological paradigm. This book delineates the various economic approaches taken and analyzes their tenets. It maps the fundamental concepts and the theoretical foundation of current economic analysis of intellectual property law, in order to fully understand the ramifications of using economic analysis of law in policy making. In so doing, one begins to appreciate the limitations of the current frameworks in confronting the challenges of the information revolution. The book addresses the fundamental adjustments in the methodology and underlying assumptions that must be employed in order for the economic approach to remain a useful analytical framework for addressing IPR in the information age.

Author: Debora Jean Halbert
Halbert examines the expansion of intellectual property rights in the information age. She critiques the theoretical foundations and current American approach to copyright law, and she suggests that we should not extend copyright law without critically assessing the impact such a move would have on the free exchange of information.

An introduction to the social and policy issues which have arisen as a result of IT. Whilst it assumes a modest familiarity with computers, the book provides a guide to the issues suitable for undergraduates. In doing so, the author prompts students to consider questions such as: * How do morality and the law relate to each other? * What should be covered in a professional code of conduct for information technology professionals? * What are the ethical issues relating to copying software? * Is electronic monitoring o employees wrong? * What are the moral codes of cyberspace? Throughout, the book shows how in many ways the technological development is outpacing the ability of our legal systems, and how different paradigms applied to ethical questions often proffer conflicting conclusions. As a result, students will find this a thought-provoking and valuable survey of the new and difficult ethical questions posed by the Internet, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality.
