"Both in Europe and the United States, a socioeconomic cataclysm of industrialization and market liberalization-including the invention of branding, mass advertising, and marketing psychology-was the driving force behind the construction of modern trademark and unfair competition laws. During the last two centuries, legal doctrine accordingly underwent partly groundbreaking transformations. Many of these account for today's transatlantic dichotomy, particularly in the field of trademark and unfair competition choice of law, or conflicts law. My analysis will focus on the most relevant characteristics of legal doctrine between the eighteenth and twenty-first centuries. I argue that a closer look at conceptual and structural differences, as well as commonalities between European and US law, provides the basis for a reconceptualization of the field"-- Provided by publisher.

The book in front of you is the first international academic volume on the legal, philosophical and economic aspects of the rise of 3D printing. In recent years 3D printing has become a hot topic. Some claim that it will revolutionize production and mass consumption, enabling consumers to print anything from clothing, automobile parts and guns to various foods, medication and spare parts for their home appliances. This may significantly reduce our environmental footprint, but also offers potential for innovation and creativity. At the same time 3D printing raises social, ethical, regulatory and legal questions. If individuals can print anything they want, how does this affect existing systems of intellectual property rights? What are the societal consequences of the various types of products one can print with a 3D printer, for example weapons? Should all aspects of 3D printing be regulated, and if so, how and to what ends? How will businesses (have to) change their way of working and their revenue model in light of the shift to printing-on-demand? How will the role of product designers change in a world where everyone has the potential to design their own products? These and other questions are addressed in high quality and in-depth contributions by academics and experts, bringing together a wide variety of academic discussions on 3D printing from different disciplines as well as presenting new views, broadening the discussion beyond the merely technical dimension of 3D printing. Bibi van den Berg is Associate Professor at eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, The Netherlands. Simone van der Hof is Full Professor at eLaw in Leiden and Eleni Kosta is Associate Professor at TILT, the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society at Tilburg University, The Netherlands.

  • Patent system, constitution, and the public
  • The resurgence of the public
  • Pre-grant opposition : ex ante validation of patents
  • Heightened standards of patentability : raising the bar on inventions
  • Compulsory licensing : local working in the global economy
  • The fault lines of harmonization
  • The access regime : creation, working, and pathways.
India's post-TRIPS (Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights) patent law reforms, which incorporates a remarkable array of flexibilities, is seen as a counter-harmonization measure in direct opposition to the dominant model of patent law pioneered by the United States. India's response, which represents an alternative model of confirming to the TRIPS Agreement, has seen stiff resistance in the form of counter-provisions in Free Trade Agreements entered by the United States and other countries. Historically, patent systems based on neoliberalism, like the American model, favour individual pursuits whereas patent systems based on social democracy, like the Indian model, focus on community goals. This distinction manifests in the manner in which the role of the public is defined in the patent system. India's model is characterized by the emphasis on the public elements in three significant ways. First, in redefining pre-grant opposition by allowing public participation in questioning the ex ante validity of patents. Second, in protecting the public domain by heightening the standard of patentability and requiring the patent applicant to demonstrate technical advance and greater effectiveness of the invention. Third, in providing for compulsory licensing when the public interest is affected by a patent that is not worked locally. The influence of the India's model has come from mimicry by other countries in following the Indian example. Countries like Argentina, Philippines, Brazil, China and South Africa have either emulated or strongly favour following India's path. Such state practices might occasion the re-imagination of the TRIPS Agreement as the Access Regime. This book explains why India took that unique route in patent law, details the provisions made the Indian patent law unique, and charters the course for countries awaiting to follow the Indian example.

  • Test Data Exclusivity: Raison d'être
  • Test Data Exclusivity and Art 39(3) TRIPS
  • Test Data Exclusivity in the US and the EU
  • Index of Data Exclusivity and Access (IDEAS)
  • Free Trade Agreements
  • Index of Data Exclusivity and Access (IDEAS)
  • National Laws
  • Test Data Exclusivity in FTAs and Access to Originator Pharmaceuticals
  • Conclusions and Recommendations.
This book explores the concept of test data exclusivity protection for pharmaceuticals. Focusing on Art 39(3) of the WTO Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS Agreement) and relevant provisions in selected free trade agreements (FTA) and national laws, it combines normative, historical, comparative and economic analysis of test data exclusivity protection. At the heart of this book is the novel and original Index of Data Exclusivity and Access (IDEAS), which analyzes the effectiveness of test data exclusivity provisions in FTAs and national laws both on the strength of exclusivity as well as on access to medicine. IDEAS provides a framework for the assessment of current test data exclusivity protection standards on the basis of their proximity to Article 39(3) of the TRIPS Agreement, the scope of exclusivity and the flexibilities in FTAs, and subsequently in national laws. This book aims to broaden national and international policy makers' grasp of the various nuances of test data exclusivity protection. Furthermore, it provides practical recommendations with regard to designing an appropriate legal system with a strong focus on promoting access to medicine for all.

Accessory liability is an often neglected but very important topic across all areas of private law. By providing a principled analytical framework for the law of accessories and identifying common themes and problems that arise in the law, this book provides much-needed clarity. It explains the fundamental concepts that are used to impose liability on accessories, particularly the conduct and mental elements of liability: 'involvement' in the primary wrong and (generally) knowledge. It also sets out in detail the specific rules and principles of liability as these operate in different areas of common law, equity and statute. A comparative study across common law and criminal law jurisdictions, including the United States, also sheds new light on what is and what is not accessory liability.

Beginning in 1986 with the discovery of LaBaCuO by Bednorz and Muller, the field of high temperature (high-Tc) superconductivity remains the biggest intellectual challenge in condensed matter physics, with theoretical (and sometimes experimental!) consensus being elusive for almost thirty years. The underlying problem of understanding how large numbers of interacting particles can form various ordered states is tremendously daunting. This thesis begins with a historical overview of superconductivity, beginning with experimental discoveries, followed by an introduction of some theoretical concepts. In particular we discuss some details about electron-phonon coupling. As the systems being studied become more complex, the tools needed to fabricate and study them must also increase in complexity. Pushing forward new experimental discoveries in high-Tc therefore requires advancing both materials growth and characterization. The characterization techniques we introduce in this thesis are angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) and resonant inelastic x-ray scattering (RIXS). We will discuss ARPES in detail, but present only a small work on RIXS in a later chapter, as a detailed treatment of the latter is beyond the scope of this thesis. Next we introduce the fabrication technique of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), and discuss the design and implementation of an experimental chamber capable of performing in-situ ARPES studies of films grown via MBE. The capabilities of this chamber are demonstrated through growth and measurement of films from two classes of materials: topological insulators and iron-based superconductors. In topological insulators, we show the capability of using a thermal cracking chalcogenide source to grow intrinsically doped films, which may be useful for future studies and devices. Recently, it had been discovered that single-unit-cell-thick (1UC) iron selenide (FeSe) films grown on strontium titanate (STO) demonstrate a large increase in superconducting transition temperature compared to bulk iron selenide. We use our MBE-ARPES chamber to grow and study FeSe films of varying thicknesses down to 1UC. We then discuss spectroscopic signatures of cross-interfacial coupling between electrons in the 1UC iron selenide and the STO substrate. This electron-phonon coupling is unprecedented and until recently had not be resolved with such clarity in any other solid state system. It is furthermore unusual in that it can enhance superconductivity in many different channels. We calculate the enhancement of Tc in 1UC FeSe/STO due to this coupling and find good agreement with experimental results, and suggest that such coupling can be broadly used to enhance Tc in other films. The thesis concludes with some future prospects and directions for study. We make the case that MBE-ARPES, and more generally the improved fabrication and characterization allowed by it, will be important to definitively elucidate the interactions between particles that make up novel phases in the solid state. Lastly, in the appendix we discuss some properties of a new six-axis in-vacuum manipulator, as well as cover some theoretical details of the FeSe and RIXS experiments.

The proliferation of international institutions with overlapping scope and authority over issue areas creates strategic dilemmas for all states. While African states are often considered marginalised in world politics and global markets, Michael Byron Nelson shows how coalitions can form a crucial part of African strategies to influence international institutions and achieve results. Building a bottom-up analysis of global governance, through legal analysis, content analysis, and in-depth interviews, Nelson illuminates institutional and coalition dynamics through case studies of three key areas - food safety, intellectual property, and agricultural trade. He highlights the difficulties encountered by coalitions attempting to navigate institutional systems, emerging from institutional thickness (increasing the number of institutions involved) and integration (increasing the formal linkages between those institutions). Finally, Nelson shows how increasing the hierarchy of an institutional system, by creating a focal point on a single institution, can make coordination easier for coalitions.

This groundbreaking, cross-generic collection is the first to consider the entire breadth of Alan Hollinghurst's Booker Prize-winning writing. Focused through the concept of influence, the volume addresses critical issues surrounding the work of Britain's most important contemporary novelist. It encompasses provocative and timely subjects ranging from gay visual cultures and representations, to Victorian, modernist and contemporary literature, as well as race and empire, theatre and cinema, eros and economics. The book reveals the fascinating intellectual and affective matter that lies beneath the polished control and dazzling style of Hollinghurst's work. Alongside contributions by distinguished British and American critics, the book includes an unpublished interview with Hollinghurst. Alan Hollinghurst: Writing under the influence uses a creative range of critical approaches to provide the most authoritative and innovative account available of Hollinghurst's works.
