Intellectual property has become important in economic growth and global business competition. Managers and legal and financial professionals must understand how countries around the world provide legal protection for new innovations, creative works, trademarks, and know-how. This book is a reference guide to intellectual property law in both emerging and developed markets. After commencing with chapters on intellectual property in the international marketplace and the role that intellectual property rights play in common business and commercial transactions, the book gives a country-specific discussion of the laws and regulations relating to patents, copyrights, trademarks and know-how in the Americas, the European Community and Eastern Europe, Asia, and developing markets in Africa, the Middle East and the Indian peninsula. In addition, it covers related regulatory areas, such as laws relating to technology transfers and licensing agreements.
