Abstract

Book Abstract: The Internet and the Emerging Importance of New Forms of Intellectual Property scrutinizes the existence of commonalities in the realm of intellectual property (IP) rights. The term 'intellectual property' has come to include numerous intangible rights beyond the traditional 'Big Three' (patent, trademark and copyright) - rights that force us to reconsider and maybe also change the object and purpose of IP. Not only do these rights generally have less solid normative footing and few, if any, well-understood inherent limits, but the borders of their misappropriation are hard to draw as well. This book poses the question of what risks and advantages accrue to such IP or 'IP-like' rights.
