We live in an age in which expressive, informational, and technological subject matter are becoming increasingly important. Intellectual property is the primary means by which the law seeks to regulate such subject matter. It aims to promote innovation and creativity, and in doing so to support solutions to global environmental and health problems, as well as freedom of expression and democracy. It also seeks to stimulate economic growth and competition, accounting for its centrality to EU Internal Market and international trade and development policies. Additionally, it is of enormous and increasing importance to business. As a result there is a substantial and ever-growing interest in intellectual property law across all spheres of industry and social policy, including an interest in its legal principles, its social and normative foundations, and its place and operation in the political economy. This handbook written by leading academics and practitioners from the field of intellectual property law, and suitable for both a specialist legal readership and an intelligent but non-specialist legal and non-legal readership, provides a comprehensive account of the following areas: - The foundations of IP law, including its emergence and development in different jurisdictions and regions; - The substantive rules and principles of IP; and - Important issues arising from the existence and operation of IP in the political economy.
When managed well, intellectual property (IP) puts enterprises in a position to lock in an advantage and command a premium. But in Europe, the process of commercializing IP remains fraugt with difficulties, with significant differences existing in the application and interpretation of these rights in each national jurisdiction. Drawing on a wide range of expertise - including editorial support and input from the European Patent Office - The Handbook of European Intellectual Property Management is a practical and easy-to-follow guide that reveals exactly how IP can contribute to improved competitive performance and to greater value on the balance sheet, whilst also offering a template for 'best practice' in IP management.
Green technologies and energy-efficient practices have become two of the most prevalent issues in global society. However, many countries still lack the technology or resources needed to implement sustainable practices within their societies. Promoting Sustainable Practices through Energy Engineering and Asset Management discusses the challenges that the developing world faces when implementing and utilizing environmentally friendly techniques. This publication is a crucial reference source for managers, scientists, technology developers, and engineers interested in the adoption of sustainable practices in developing countries.
Conducting an empirical study of China's remarkable transition to wind power and the possibility of replicating its model elsewhere, Joanna I. Lewis adds greater depth to a theoretical understanding of China's technological innovation systems and its current and future role in a globalized economy. Lewis focuses on China's specific methods of international technology transfer, its forms of international cooperation and competition, and its implementation of effective policies promoting the development of a home-grown industry. China could one day come to dominate global wind turbine sales, becoming a hub of technological innovation and major proponent of low-carbon economic change.
