Intellectual Property and Property Rights is an invaluable reference work in light of the increasingly important policy debates over patents, copyrights and other intellectual property rights.

This insightful single volume consists of influential articles by leading scholars addressing the interconnections between intellectual property rights and property rights. Topics include the justification for intellectual property as property, the historical development of intellectual property rights as property rights and whether intellectual property can be conceptually framed as a property right.

With a new and original introduction by the editor, this is a must-have volume that will be of use to lawyers, judges, legal scholars, policy analysts, researchers and all those who need a one-stop resource for understanding the nature of intellectual property and property rights.
