In the Information Age, historically marginalized groups and developing nations continue to strive for socio-economic empowerment within the global community. Their ultimate success largely depends upon their ability to develop, protect, and exploit their greatest natural resource: intellectual property.

Through an exploration of the techniques used in social entrepreneurship, Intellectual Property, Entrepreneurship and Social Justice provides a framework by which historically marginalized communities and developing nations can cooperate with the developed world to establish a socially cohesive global intellectual property order. Divided into four parts, the knowledgeable contributors discuss topics surrounding entrepreneurship and empowerment, education and advocacy, engagement and activism and, finally, commencement.

Experts in the field, scholars, law professors and students of intellectual property, human rights and international trade and development will find this book to be both resourceful and thought-provoking.
