Using as an initial point the work of globally-renowned Australian scholar Sam Ricketson, whose contributions to intellectual property (IP) practice and law have been general and richly diverse, Across Intellectual Property: Essays in Honour of Sam Ricketson (PDF) studies topical and fundamental issues from across IP law. With authors from the UK, US, Asia, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand, the ebook is structured in four parts, which move across IP regimes, disciplines, jurisdictions, and professions, addressing issues that include what precisely is protected by IP regimes; regime differences; copyright authorship and artificial intelligence; overlaps and transplants; internationalization of IP through public and private international law; IP intersections with historical and empirical research, personality, human rights, privacy, and cultural identity; IP scholars and universities, and the influence of textbooks and treatises. This work should be read by anybody interested in understanding the crucial issues in the evolving field of IP law.
‘This work, by some of the main achievers of intellectual property in the world, sheds light on the direction and state of IP policy internationally. It is an appropriate testament to the career of Sam Ricketson, who has been one of the forerunners of IP in Australia and a prominent scholar of IP worldwide.’ — Francis Gurry, Director-General of the World Intellectual Property Organization
