About this book:

Intellectual Property Law and Human Rights is the expanded edition that provides a complete overview of all the points of interaction between intellectual property and human rights. Once regarded as a niche topic, the nexus of intellectual property and human rights now lies in the eye of the storm that is today’s global economy. In this pre-eminent work in the crucial area of legal theory and practice – with nine completely new chapters – well-known authorities in both intellectual property law and human rights law present an in-depth analysis and discussion of essential and emerging issues in the convergence of intellectual property law and human rights law. The fourth edition is fully updated to address current matters as diverse as artificial intelligence, climate change, and biotechnological materials, all centred on the relations between intellectual property and freedom of expression and the fundamental right to privacy in an intellectual property environment.

What’s in this book:

The contributors address such topics as the following and more in a confident manner:

  • the status of copyright as a fundamental right;
  • fair use, transformative use, and the US First Amendment;
  • intellectual property in the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights;
  • freedom to receive and impart information under the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights;
  • how to mitigate the risks that Article 17 of Directive 2019/970 poses to freedom of expression;
  • fair dealing defences;
  • algorithmic copyright enforcement and free speech;
  • developing a right to privacy for corporations;
  • expanding the role of morality and public policy in European patent law; and
  • ethical and religious concerns over patenting biotechnological inventions.

How this will help you:

Keeping pace with the developments and trends in the series of legal issue, this book will prove to be a classic work in this topic. As human rights issues continue to arise in an intellectual property context, practitioners, academics, and policymakers in both fields will continue to recognize and use this well-established cornerstone work in the debate as a springboard to the future development of the ever more prominent interface of intellectual property and human rights.
