This accessible new book delivers in two key areas: first, a new way of thinking about copyright reform in countries which are engaged in the modernization of their copyright laws; and second, a new international approach to copyright regulation in the era of globalization.

This volume draws specific attention to a number of special policy concerns which should inform post-socialist reform. These include the encouragement of creativity, innovation and entrepreneurship, the role of intellectual property in post-socialist modernization, the protection of cultural heritage and minority rights, and the close relationship between recognition of authors’ rights and the protection of fundamental human rights and freedoms. While these policy issues are generally important to intellectual property regulation, they are of special concern in the post-authoritarian context.

This highly readable book will interest students and academics involved with copyright and intellectual property law and well as transitional studies.
