There is considerable variation in the nature, scope and institutional forms of legal protection for valuable geographical brands such as Champagne, Colombian coffee and Darjeeling tea. While regional products are increasingly important for producers, consumers and policy makers, the international legal regime under the TRIPS Agreement remains unclear. Adopting a historical approach, Dev Gangjee explores the rules regulating these valuable geographical designations within international intellectual property law. He traces the emergence of geographical indications as a distinct category while investigating the key distinguishing feature of the link between regional products and their places of origin. The research addresses long-standing puzzles, such as the multiplicity of regimes operating in this area; the recognition of the link between product and place and its current articulation in the TRIPS definition; the varying scope of protection; and the extent to which geographical indications ought to be treated as a category distinct from trade marks.

Many companies that have become household names have avoided billions in taxes by 'parking' their valuable intellectual property assets in holding companies located in tax-favored jurisdictions. In the United States, for example, many domestic companies have moved their IP to tax-favored states such as Delaware or Nevada, while multinational companies have done the same by setting up foreign subsidiaries in Ireland, Singapore, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. In this illuminating work, tax scholar Jeffrey A. Maine teams up with IP expert Xuan-Thao Nguyen to explain how the use of these IP holding companies has become economically unjustified and socially unacceptable, and how numerous calls for change have been made. This book should be read by anyone interested in how corporations - including Gore-Tex, Victoria's Secret, Sherwin-Williams, Toys-R-Us, Apple, Microsoft, and Uber - have avoided tax liability with IP holding companies and how different constituencies are working to stop them.

Small market economies provide a valuable insight into how a country might balance competing interests in global intellectual property. As developed countries that are also net-importers of intellectual property, small market economies have similar concerns to some developing countries. This duality of developed and developing country interests has resulted in some innovative ways of calibrating laws so that they both support national economic and social needs and honour international commitments. In this book, Susy Frankel uses examples from the small market economies of Singapore, New Zealand and Israel to address global intellectual property issues. Those issues include approaching treaty interpretation to both assist in implementation of obligations and utilisation of flexibilities, and effective dispute resolution; the links between trade and innovation; when and how patent and copyright law can be flexible; the importance of trade marks to small businesses; parallel importing; and the protection of traditional knowledge.

English summary: Hilke Kickler studies the inclusion, definition and problems of protected geographical indication between the adoption of the German Trademark Act of 1894 and the coming into force of the Trademark Act on 1 January 1995. She shows the extent to which political and economic developments on a national and international level influenced this protection. German description: Hilke Kickler analysiert die Geschichte des Schutzes geographischer Herkunftsangaben vom zweiten deutschen Kaiserreich bis zur Einfuhrung des Markengesetzes am 1. Januar 1995. Dabei geht es um die Frage, warum geographische Herkunftsangaben in den Gesetzen des gewerblichen Rechtsschutzes geschutzt wurden, wie dieser Schutz ausgestaltet war und welche Probleme sich dabei fur Rechtsprechung und Literatur ergaben. Die Ausgestaltung dieses Schutzes durch Gesetzgebung, Rechtsprechung und Literatur setzt die Autorin konsequent in Zusammenhang mit den Entwicklungen auf wirtschaftlicher und politischer Ebene in Deutschland sowie mit den nationalen und internationalen Entwicklungen beim Schutz des geistigen und gewerblichen Eigentums. Sie schafft so eine umfassende historische Untersuchung von Ursachen und Wirkung des Schutzes geographischer Herkunftsangaben.

The TPP was negotiated among 12 economically diverse countries, including some most highly developed and rich countries (i.e., the United States, Japan, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and Singapore), some newly industrialized countries (i.e., Mexico and Malaysia), and some less-developed countries (i.e., Peru, Chile, and Vietnam). A new paradigm created in this context is that countries with vastly different economic developments can actually agree on a set of very high standards to regulate their economic activities, to liberalize their trade, and to protect intellectual property and foreign investment. The contents of the TPP also reflect its status of being a “new paradigm” as the “21st-Century Trade Agreement” and being a pioneer in rule making in many key regulatory areas. These include not only the improved and enhanced rules on traditional issues already covered by the WTO , such as goods, services, and IP rights, but also the carefully designed rules in areas that have never been addressed in the WTO or comprehensively covered in other FTAs , such as state-owned enterprises, electronic commerce, and labor and environmental issues. Although the United States has withdrawn from the TPP, the remaining countries are still putting efforts into establishing a TPP without the United States or a TPP with China. Economically speaking, the current 11 parties account for about 20 % of the global economy. If such agreement is put into force, there will be significant implications for the region, for the multilateral system, and even for other FTAs. The book addresses the potential of the TPP to change the ways trade and investments are conducted and argues for its potential to be the start of an international trade/economic law revolution. The book elaborates the relationship between the TPP and other existing trade agreements such as the WTO and other FTAs and explains how the TPP is to deal with traditional and new issues. Taken together, the authors argue that the implications of the TPP go beyond its current membership. It is hoped that the book will make an important contribution to the field of international economic law.

As relevant to today's debates about law and order and punishment as when they were published, titles in this set put forward the central principle that it is impossible to think about contemporary problems without thinking about society. Covering topics such as youth crime, legal aid, youth detention and the causes of criminal behaviour, titles in this set are still key to any study of law and criminology.
