This volume of Law in Context focuses on the legal issues raised by the digital revolution. It presents new perspectives on familiar questions about the effectiveness of intellectual property in promoting innovation and protecting privacy. The articles address such issues as:

  • heritage and cultural property protection in an age of instant reproduction and voracious knowledge exploitation;
  • the difficulties faced by developing nations and by China in dealing with intellectual property;
  • cyberspace and the implications for privacy law;
  • improving the patent system to promote innovation; and
  • copyright and digitisation processes in NZ museums.
This volume goes beyond conventional wisdom and disciplinary orthodoxy to re-evaluate innovation, communication and law in an era of rapid technological change.
