New Book Release: Intellectual Property as a Complex Adaptive System – the role of IP in the Innovation System
We start new year with a hint to a new book publication on “Intellectual Property as a Complex Adaptation System – the Role of IP in the Innovation Society”.
In a 19-page book report, our partner Dr Christof Augenstein is part of the publication and gives an overview in chapter 3 about technology protection and the enforcement of patents in Europe, today and in the future.
The paper emphasizes the importance of patent protection of technical inventions compared to protection by trade secrets only. Patent protection also requires a system of enforcement that suits the needs of its users. After outlining the status quo, the paper summarizes the structure of the future Unified Patent Court. It will further discuss whether patent litigation will be more remote from the place of business and whether litigation will be more expansive and burdensome as compared to the current situation.
“Intellectual Property as a Complex Adaptive System – the role of IP in the innovation society” expands the book series under the patronage of the European Intellectual Property Institutes Network (EIPIN) with another incisive work.
It discusses recent innovation trends and focuses on how different forms of intellectual property law can support these trends. Inventors and entrepreneurs are guided through the life cycle of IP-intensive assets that commercialise human creativity. Using a range of sector-specific, interdisciplinary and actor-oriented approaches, each contribution offers suggestions on how to enhance Europe’s capacity to foster innovation-based, sustainable economic growth on a global scale.
The book publication, 232 pages in total, was edited by Anselm Kamperman Sanders, Professor of Intellectual Property Law, Department of International and European Law, and Anke Moerland, Professor of Intellectual Property Law, Department of International and European Law, Maastricht University, The Netherlands on 7 December 2021.
