International Intellectual Property: A Handbook of Contemporary Research aims to provide researchers and practitioners of international intellectual property law with the necessary tools to understand the latest debates in this incredibly dynamic and complex field. The book combines doctrinal analysis with ground-breaking theoretical research by many of the most recognised experts in the field.

At its core, it offers overviews of the structure and content of the two instruments that can undoubtedly be considered historically as the most important intellectual property treaties, namely the Berne Convention on the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works and the Paris Convention on the Protection of Industrial Property. Several chapters also discuss parts of the TRIPS Agreement.

This important book will prove a valuable resource for students and academics of international intellectual property wishing to obtain useful knowledge of current issues such as, conflicts between IP (especially patents and trademark) rights, geographical indications, protection of luxury brands, orphan works and innovation.
