Description

Transnational Intellectual Property Law provides students comparative knowledge of intellectual property for today’s world. The book provides students a strong understanding of intellectual property law in four important global stakeholders and regions: United States, European Union, Japan and China. Transcending national borders, the students will learn the similarities and differences in these four regions through reading and analyzing valuable primary sources of judicial opinions from the courts. The materials allow the students to identify how culture and traditions influence judges in crafting their opinions, in both common law and civil law countries.

The book is organized in six units. Each unit begins with a concise summary of a doctrinal area of intellectual property law in each of the four regions, United States, European Union, Japan and China. Judicial opinions from a particular region follow the doctrinal summaries within each unit.
