Intellectual Property, Innovation and
Economic Inequality (Cambridge University Press, forthcoming
2024) (edited with Daniel Benoliel, Francis Gurry and Keun Lee)
While growing disparities in wealth and income are well-documented across the globe, the role of intellectual property rights is often overlooked. This volume brings together leading commentators from around the world to interrogate the interrelationship between intellectual property and economic inequality. Interdisciplinary and globally oriented by design, the book features economists, legal scholars, policy analysts, and other experts. Chapters address the impact of intellectual property rights on economic inequality, the effect of economic inequality on the protection and enforcement of these rights, and the potential use of innovation law and policy to help reduce economic inequality. The volume also tackles timely issues like race and gender disparities and the North-South divide in innovation. This book is available as Open Access on Cambridge Core.
The Geopolitics of Chinese Internets
(Routledge, forthcoming 2024) (edited with Jack Linchuan
Qiu and Elisa Oreglia)
Featuring leading scholars on "Chinese internets" – in the plural – from around the world, this interdisciplinary book explores the changing digital landscape in China and provides insight into contemporary Chinese techno-geopolitics.
Policymakers, commentators and the mass media have widely viewed "Chinese tech" as a unitary and statist monolith. This predominant view, however, is not only incomplete but has become increasingly obsolete. Using a pluralist and multilayered approach to analyzing Chinese techno-geopolitics, this volume addresses the following important questions:
Who are the key players in "Chinese internets" today?
What role do government agencies, state-owned enterprises, private companies and individual netizens play?
How do "Chinese internets" operate at the global, regional, national or local levels?
How are external world or regional events influencing or being influenced by geopolitical patterns within China?
The Geopolitics of Chinese Internets will be a key resource for policymakers, scholars, researchers and practitioners interested in Chinese techno-geopolitics and the changing digital landscape in China. This book was originally published as a special issue of
Information, Communication & Society.

Cross, Doris E. Long and Greg R. Vetter)

This casebook includes several unique features. First, each section starts with a box question that enables students to stay focused when reviewing materials before class. Second, statutory provisions are included in separate boxes to make it easier for instructors to cover the materials. Third, where available and relevant, historical or contextual background information has been provided alongside the case excerpts. Such information will enable students to better understand the included appellate cases, which often briefly recite the facts or have been edited down to enhance teaching effectiveness. Fourth, the book includes a wide variety of notes, questions, and problems to make it suitable for different pedagogical approaches and assessment needs. Finally, the materials seek to highlight the unique features of U.S. intellectual property laws. The study of these features will pave the way for more advanced coursework in the intellectual property area.
