Innovation, Competition And Consumer Welfare In Intellectual Property Law

Posted by D. Daniel Sokol

Gustavo Ghidini, Professor of Intellectual Property and Competition Law, University of Milan and Director, Observatory on Intellectual Property, Competition and Communications Law, LUISS Guido Carli University, Rome, Italy has just published Innovation, Competition And Consumer Welfare In Intellectual Property Law.

BOOK ABSTRACT: This authoritative book provides a comprehensive critical overview of the basic IP paradigms, such as patents, trademarks and copyrights. Their intersection with competition law and their impacts on the exercise of social welfare are analysed from an evolutionary perspective.

The analyses and proposals presented encompass the features and rationales of a legal field in constant evolution, and relate them to increasingly rapid technological, economic, social and geo-political developments. Gustavo Ghidini highlights the emerging trends that challenge the traditional ‘all-exclusionary’ vision of IP law and its application. The author expertly combines holistic, evolutionary and constitutionally oriented approaches, with the search for a rebalancing of the IP rights holders’ positions with citizens’ and users’ rights.
