International Intellectual Property in an Integrated World Economy, Fourth Edition by Frederick M. Abbott, Thomas Cottier, and Francis Gurry, provides a comprehensive treatment of the international intellectual property system across the spectrum of intellectual property rights and interests. It introduces the institutional architecture at the multilateral, regional/plurilateral, bilateral and national levels. For each form of IP, it addresses the technical legal rules and illustrative jurisprudence, as well as economic and social welfare implications. Each of the authors has played a role in the development and implementation of the international rules, and they bring their experience to bear in introducing students to the field.

New to the Fourth Edition:

  • The latest developments in bilateral and regional agreements regulating intellectual property, including NAFTA 2.0 (USMCA), CPTPP, and CETA
  • Important new judicial decisions, including the U.S. Supreme Court decision adopting international exhaustion of patents and CJEU decisions addressing trademarks, geographical indications, and copyright
  • Developments in IP and human rights; IP and competition law; and IP and health
  • The WTO panel report in the Australia-Tobacco case

Professors and students will benefit from:

  • An approach to the international IP system that situates the rules within the broader context of international law and the public policy objectives that governments, industry, and interest groups are seeking to achieve
  • Case law from international dispute settlement bodies, as well as from national and regional courts
  • Discussion of patent, trademark, geographical indication, copyright, design, trade secret, and data protection; as well as plant variety protection, protection of genetic resources and traditional knowledge, and the role of open source
  • An explanation of the new European Union Unitary Patent system
  • Exploration of the increasingly important role of emerging market IP systems
  • Materials to help students understand the disputes between the United States and China involving IP, investment, and transfer of technology
  • Inclusion of important jurisprudential developments
