In recent years, the global economy has undergone profound changes: information products and services are increasingly driving productivity and growth, using more diverse methods of distribution. Intellectual property (IP) transactions are a fundamental part of everyday global commerce, and in the absence of a common global understanding there is a growing need to develop common legal rules to guide and support contracting practices.

This book provides a systematic, comparative, and transnational perspective on all major types of IP transactions, covering both contracts which deal exclusively with IP rights and other types of contracts which raise IP issues. Using national and local case law and legal sources as a starting point, it identifies standard legal issues, problems, and solutions which typically arise, and analyses them from the perspective of global and transnational policy. At a time when efforts are being made to bring coherence to diverse national IP laws and regulations, it sets out a comprehensive global "soft law" framework to govern IP transactions in the information age.

This is an ambitious and rigorous exploration of a vital yet neglected area of IP law, and an invaluable resource for academics and policy-makers alike.
