Guide to Intellectual Property

What it is, how to protect it, how to exploit it

Intellectual Property (IP) is often a company’s single most valuable asset. And yet IP is hard to value, widely misunderstood and frequently under-exploited. IP accounts for an estimated $5trn of GDP in the US alone. It covers patents, trademarks, domain names, copyrights, designs and trade secrets. Unsurprisingly, companies zealously guard their own ideas and challenge the IP of others. Damages arising from infringements have fostered a sizeable claims industry. But IP law is complex, and the business, financial and legal issues around it are difficult to navigate. Court decisions and interpretation of IP laws can be unpredictable, and can dramatically change the fortunes of businesses that rely on their IP – as demonstrated in the pharmaceutical industry’s battle with generic drugs. This comprehensive guide to intellectual property will help companies, investors, and creative thinkers understand the scope and nature of IP issues, pose the right questions to their advisers and maximize the value from this crucial intangible asset.

Intellectual Property: A Very Short Introduction

We all create intellectual property. We all use intellectual property. Intellectual property is the most pervasive yet least understood way we regulate expression. Despite its importance to so many aspects of the global economy and daily life, intellectual property policy remains a confusing and arcane subject. This engaging book clarifies both the basic terms and the major conflicts surrounding these fascinating areas of law, offering a layman's introduction to copyright, patents, trademarks, and other forms of knowledge falling under the purview of intellectual property rights. Using vivid examples, noted media expert Siva Vaidhyanathan illustrates the powers and limits of intellectual property, distilling with grace and wit the complex tangle of laws, policies, and values governing the dissemination of ideas, expressions, inventions, creativity, and data collection in the modern world. Vaidhyanathan explains that intellectual property exists as it does because powerful interests want it to exist. The strongest economies in the world have a keen interest in embedding rigid methods of control and enforcement over emerging economies to preserve the huge economic interests linked to their copyright industries-film, music, software, and publishing. For this reason, the fight over the global standardization of intellectual property has become one of the most important sites of tension in North-South global relations. Through compelling case studies, including those of Starbucks, Coca-Cola, Sony, Amazon, and Google Books, Vaidhyanathan shows that the modern intellectual property systems reflect three centuries of changes in politics, economics, technologies, and social values. Although it emerged from a desire to foster creativity while simultaneously protecting it, intellectual property today has fundamentally shifted to a political dimension.

. . . the book is enlightening for practitioners who are often required to take into account global considerations when advising clients. . . It would be of particular interest to policy-makers in the intellectual property field. Australian Intellectual Property Law Bulletin Dutfield and Suthersanen have skillfully captured in one concise volume all the important things you need to know about international intellectual property law. The materials are accessible, timely, methodically presented and at times critical. The book s detailed, in-depth and comparative analyses provide helpful insights into the increasingly complex international intellectual property system. Global Intellectual Property Law is not only an effective textbook for students interested in the subject, but a desktop companion for policymakers and professionals who need a quick and up-to-date overview of global intellectual property issues. Peter K. Yu, Drake University, US and Zhongnan University of Economics and Law, China Today global intellectual property rules affect everything from poor people s access to essential medicines to farmers rights in seeds to access to knowledge on the Internet. But at the same time that pundits declare that intellectual property has come of age, this body of law is more contested than ever, with critics asking whether intellectual property is even necessary to stimulate innovation, and whether and how intellectual property ought to be tailored to address the health and developmental needs of the global South. Dutfield and Suthersanen s Global Intellectual Property Law is a timely and lucid contribution to the field. This tome covers every hot button area of international intellectual property law and policy, from debates over the affect of intellectual property on development, to controversy over biotechnology and property rights in life, to claims by indigenous people and developing countries for new property rights in traditional knowledge. Dutfield and Suthersanen describe the current terrain, comparing North American, European, and developing world approaches; much to their credit, they do not shy away from describing points of tension among global actors. Global Intellectual Property Law is a must have for scholars and practitioners in the field for whom, I anticipate, the book will become a trusted and oft-used reference on their bookshelf. The book is clearly written and engaging enough to be perfect for students or laypersons interested in acquiring a comprehensive and critical appraisal of the field. Madhavi Sunder, University of California, Davis, US Dutfield and Suthersanen have succeeded in writing an engaging treatise that offers a truly modern perspective on intellectual property today. With examples from every continent, from every level of jurisdiction (national, regional, international), their study covers all the traditional fundamentals of intellectual property law as well as the current critical interrogations that their development raises. It is a book with character. Ysolde Gendreau, Université de Montréal, Canada Global Intellectual Property Law by Dutfield and Suthersanen provides a broad overview of the issues at stake concerning fair and effective ways to organize the information resources upon which the well-being of us all depends. The book highlights international and comparative perspectives on IP law and policy. Although primarily targeted at postgraduate level students, the book is enlightening also for practitioners, and a must-read for all policy makers and opinion leaders in the IP field.

Intellectual Property Strategy

Most managers leave intellectual property issues to the legal department, unaware that an organization's intellectual property can help accomplish a range of management goals, from accessing new markets to improving existing products to generating new revenue streams. In this book, intellectual property expert and Harvard Law School professor John Palfrey offers a short briefing on intellectual property strategy for corporate managers and nonprofit administrators. Palfrey argues for strategies that go beyond the traditional highly restrictive "sword and shield" approach, suggesting that flexibility and creativity are essential to a profitable long-term intellectual property strategy -- especially in an era of changing attitudes about media. Intellectual property, writes Palfrey, should be considered a key strategic asset class. Almost every organization has an intellectual property portfolio of some value and therefore the need for an intellectual property strategy. A brand, for example, is an important form of intellectual property, as is any information managed and produced by an organization. Palfrey identifies the essential areas of intellectual property -- patent, copyright, trademark, and trade secret -- and describes strategic approaches to each in a variety of organizational contexts, based on four basic steps. The most innovative organizations employ multiple intellectual property approaches, depending on the situation, asking hard, context-specific questions. By doing so, they achieve both short- and long-term benefits while positioning themselves for success in the global information economy.

Thirty years ago federal policy underwent a major change through the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980, which fostered greater uniformity in the way research agencies treat inventions arising from the work they sponsor. Before the Act, if government agencies funded university research, the funding agency retained ownership of the knowledge and technologies that resulted. However, very little federally funded research was actually commercialized. As a result of the Act's passage, patenting and licensing activity from such research has accelerated. Although the system created by the Act has remained stable, it has generated debate about whether it might impede other forms of knowledge transfer. Concerns have also arisen that universities might prioritize commercialization at the expense of their traditional mission to pursue fundamental knowledge--for example, by steering research away from curiosity-driven topics toward applications that could yield financial returns. To address these concerns, the National Research Council convened a committee of experts from universities, industry, foundations, and similar organizations, as well as scholars of the subject, to review experience and evidence of the technology transfer system's effects and to recommend improvements. The present volume summarizes the committee's principal findings and recommendations.
