In The Global Regime for the Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights, Xavier Seuba offers a comprehensive description of the international norms and bodies dealing with the enforcement of intellectual property rights. The book analyzes multilateral, plurilateral, and bilateral treaties, and their national implementation, along with civil, border, and criminal enforcement.

The book also explores the interface between the enforcement of intellectual property rights and the norms regulating international trade, competition, and human rights, as well as the conceptual and systemic aspects of enforcement, while illustrating the importance of these rights with examples in litigation. The book should be read by anyone interested in how intellectual property rights are being enforced around the world, and how these efforts relate to other legal regimes.

  • Presents a thorough examination of the international norms and bodies that relate to intellectual property enforcement, providing an invaluable source of information for students, scholars, and professionals in the industry
  • Sets out the mechanisms behind intellectual property litigation, offering lawyers, judges, and enforcement officials a vital resource for contextualizing their cases and situations in a broader international setting
  • Through chapters on economic analysis, human rights relevance, the interaction between international treaties, and the present international normative and institutional landscape, it provides important guidance for policymakers, trade diplomats, ministries of trade, and public servants in national IP offices and international organizations
