Intellectual property and emerging technologies : the new biology

Author: Matthew Rimmer; Alison McLennan
Publisher: Cheltenham [etc.] : Edward Elgar, cop. 2012.
Series: Queen Mary studies in intellectual property
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This unique and comprehensive collection investigates the challenges posed to intellectual property by recent paradigm shifts in biology.

It explores the legal ramifications of emerging technologies, such as genomics, synthetic biology, stem cell research, nanotechnology, and biodiscovery.

Extensive contributions examine recent controversial court decisions in patent law - such as Bilski v.

Kappos, and the litigation over Myriad's patents in respect of BRCA1 and BRCA2 - while other papers explore sui generis fields, such as access to genetic resources, plant breeders' rights, and traditional knowledge.

The collection considers the potential and the risks of the new biology for global challenges - such as access to health-care, the protection of the environment and biodiversity, climate change, and food security.

It also considers Big Science projects - such as biobanks, the 1000 Genomes Project, and the Doomsday Vault.

The inter-disciplinary research brings together the work of scholars from Australia, Canada, Europe, the UK, and the US and involves not only legal analysis of case law and policy developments, but also historical, comparative, sociological, and ethical methodologies.  Read more...
