Oxford University Press #ad - We all use intellectual property. Used book in Good Condition. Using vivid examples, inventions, expressions, distilling with grace and wit the complex tangle of laws, policies, noted media expert Siva Vaidhyanathan illustrates the powers and limits of intellectual property, creativity, and values governing the dissemination of ideas, and data collection in the modern world.

Vaidhyanathan explains that intellectual property exists as it does because powerful interests want it to exist. The strongest economies in the world have a keen interest in embedding rigid methods of control and enforcement over emerging economies to preserve the huge economic interests linked to their copyright industries-film, music, software, and publishing.

Intellectual Property: A Very Short Introduction Very Short Introductions #ad - Oxford university Press USA.

This engaging book clarifies both the basic terms and the major conflicts surrounding these fascinating areas of law, offering a layman's introduction to copyright, trademarks, patents, and other forms of knowledge falling under the purview of intellectual property rights.
