Ever since Singapore became independent in 1965, its leaders have invested tremendous efforts and resources to develop its economy in order to create jobs for its people and to support national development. This book describes the challenging journey of Singapore in developing a knowledge-based economy driven by research and innovation and the roles played by research institutes, universities, research manpower and appropriate collaboration between research institutes and industry. The book traces the foundations of Singapore's research story from the time of its independence in 1965 to the present day. Through interviews with the key players and research into the records, the establishment of the key institutes and the roles of a global cast of researchers, scientists and engineers in setting up the R&D infrastructure are outlined. The impact of the concerted efforts to build up a credible and world-class research capability in Singapore over the last 25 years is discussed, as are the tremendous challenges faced by the key players in the drive to develop a knowledge-based economy and the ultimate goal of an innovation-driven economy.

In recent years, business leaders, policymakers, and inventors have complained to the media and to Congress that today's patent system stifles innovation instead of fostering it. But like the infamous patent on the peanut butter and jelly sandwich, much of the cited evidence about the patent system is pure anecdote--making realistic policy formation difficult. Is the patent system fundamentally broken, or can it be fixed with a few modest reforms? Moving beyond rhetoric, Patent Failure provides the first authoritative and comprehensive look at the economic performance of patents in forty years. James Bessen and Michael Meurer ask whether patents work well as property rights, and, if not, what institutional and legal reforms are necessary to make the patent system more effective. Patent Failure presents a wide range of empirical evidence from history, law, and economics. The book's findings are stark and conclusive. While patents do provide incentives to invest in research, development, and commercialization, for most businesses today, patents fail to provide predictable property rights. Instead, they produce costly disputes and excessive litigation that outweigh positive incentives. Only in some sectors, such as the pharmaceutical industry, do patents act as advertised, with their benefits outweighing the related costs. By showing how the patent system has fallen short in providing predictable legal boundaries, Patent Failure serves as a call for change in institutions and laws. There are no simple solutions, but Bessen and Meurer's reform proposals need to be heard. The health and competitiveness of the nation's economy depend on it.

Bently & Sherman's Intellectual Property Law is the definitive textbook on the subject. The authors' all-embracing approach not only clearly sets out the law in relation to copyright, patents, trade marks, passing off, and confidentiality, but also takes account of a wide range of academic opinion enabling readers to explore and make informed judgements about key principles. The particularly clear and lively writing style ensures that even the most complex areas are lucid and comprehensible.New to this editionAn introduction updated to take account of case-law on the meaning of 'intellectual property' (Phillips v Mulcaire), new writing in the field of justifications (Breakey, Merges), and the latest literature discussing the expansion of intellectual property rights. Important developments at an international level are also covered, such as the Beijing treaty for Audiovisual Performers, and the Marrakech Treaty on copyright exceptions for the visually impairedA rewritten copyright section which covers the revolutionary case-law of the CJEU, in particular on originality, infringement, and the scope of rights, and analyses the extension of term for sound recordings/performances, the new 'Hargreaves exceptions', the Digital Economy Act 2010, the orphan works provisions in the EU Directive and the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, as well as the Supreme Court's decision in MeltwaterPart II on patents takes account of the impending Unitary Patent regime for the EU, alongside coverage of important case law from the CJEU (e.g. Brustle) and the Supreme Court on sufficiency, industrial applicability, and infringement by 'making' (Lundbeck v Generica, HGS, Schutz V Werit)The designs section has been updated in the light of CJEU (e.g. Grupo Promer), and domestic case law on Community Designs, UK Registered Designs and UK Unregistered Designs, as well as legislative reforms (such as repeal of section 52 CDPA and the other adjustments proposed to be effected in the Intellectual Property Bill 2013)Part IV on trade marks accounts for new case-law from the European Court of Justice, on the functions of marks (L'Oreal, Louis Vuitton, Interflora), the territorial aspects of notions such as distinctiveness, reputation, and genuine use (Leno Merken) and infringement (DHL), and anticipates the revision of the Community Trade Mark in light of the Max Planck reviewPart VI on litigation and remedies includes a review of the implications of the new unitary patent court system, and of the reforms of the Patent County Court (fee caps, and the introduction of the small claims process), considers developments in the field of injunctive relief, and examines the new Border Regulation, the Law Commission review of the 'threats provisions', and the criminalisation of registered design infringement under the Intellectual Property Bill 2013
