This book is a timely contribution to an important debate on the increased, changed or new scope of Intellectual Property Rights in the light of Contemporary Capitalism. How the expanded or pushed Intellectual Property Rights domain encourages an individual and corporate self-interest over community, and the consequences this has in the context of markets, competition, globalization, trade, corporate dominance is a central feature of this book. Focusing on evidence from sector studies as well as inter-disciplinary theory-perspectives, the book is relevant for policymakers, economists, business analysts, industrialists, managers, as well as researchers and students interested in IPR studies and related debates.
