Prepared by PIIPA’s global team of IP professionals and partners in human development, this book examines the social impact of intellectual property laws as they relate to health, food security, education, new technologies, preservation of bio-cultural heritage, and contemporary challenges in promoting the arts. It explores how intellectual property frameworks could be better calibrated to meet socioeconomic needs in countries at different stages of development, with local contexts and culture in mind.
Scenarios for the future are discussed. A resource for policy-makers, stakeholders, non-profits, and students, this volume highlights alternative modes of innovation that are emerging to address such diverse challenges as neglected or resurgent diseases in developing countries and the harnessing of creative possibilities on the Internet. The chapters emphasize not only fair access by individuals and communities to intellectual property – protected material, whether a cure, a crop variety, clean technology, a textbook, or a tune – but also the enhancement of their own capabilities in cultural participation and innovation.
