The Protection of Intellectual Property in International Law

Henning Grosse Ruse-Kahn

  • The first book to comprehensively analyse intellectual property (IP) protection in the wider context of international law.
  • Analytical structure builds on several methodological frameworks to conceptualise norm relations in international law, such as conflict of norms, systems theory and a conflict of laws approach.
  • Takes the perspective of alternative international law systems that function to protect IP, including human rights law and investment law.
  • Considers the approach to IP under international trade, bio-diversity and climate change law, reviewing the different answers these systems offer to legal questions on the protection of IP and how these approaches may be recognised within the international IP system.
