Few changes in the world of intellectual property (IP) have been as transformative as the advent and proliferation of digital content works. The high value of these works in modern society has prompted calls for new IP standards to promote the protection – and the sharing – of such valuable assets.
Assembling some of the best analyses by legal scholars, these volumes explore the implications both of applying older IP standards to the new digital technologies and of devising new enhanced IP standards for the digital age. In covering the influences of patent, copyright, trademark, trade secret and other intellectual property laws, this wide-ranging collection reflects the sweeping impacts of IP standards and controversies on digital content works.
Professor Gruner’s extensive introduction illuminates the timeless policy and societal issues involved and suggests ways forward for this vibrant new field.
