The diversity of methods used and perspectives displayed in intellectual property law scholarship is now quite vast. This book brings together scholars from around the globe to discuss these methods and provide insights into how they are best used. The book portrays the multiplicity of approaches available to a scholar of IP, and demonstrates how our understanding of intellectual property law is enriched by (among other things) use of historical, comparative and empirical analysis. It also highlights the emergence in the US of law and economics as one of the dominant paradigms through which to consider intellectual property law. But it also illustrates how learning may usefully be imported from other fields, such as law and society, political economy, and international relations, as well as less obvious quarters such as ethics and happiness research. Methods and Perspectives in Intellectual Property will prove valuable for professors, researchers, policymakers and students in intellectual property law as well as other related areas.
