In this timely volume Professor Arti Rai brings together a wide range of articles that reveal the important role of intellectual property law in the formation and development of the dynamic and economically significant biotechnology industry. The collection encompasses theoretical articles that present principles of patent economics important to the industry, articles that discuss the patent law doctrines most relevant to biotechnology and empirical studies on the 'real world' effects of patents and secrecy. These are resonant issues in an ever-expanding field, and will establish this book as an essential reference point for lawyers, researchers and students.
'Arti Rai is a wise and pithy scholar of patent jurisprudence. She is an insightful futurist of intellectual property, showing great insight about the implications of new technologies - such as information technology, biotechnology, pharmacogenomics, and synthetic biology. Arti Rai is also a lucid and persuasive advocate of the necessity for patent law reform. This authoritative and carefully researched volume will be essential reading.' - Matthew Rimmer, The Australian National University, Australia
