A NEW CLIMATE FOR INNOVATION?


A couple of weeks after attending a session at the Fordham IP conference that addressed IP securitisation in the Asia Pacific region, the IPKat found himself contemplating a copy of Exploiting Patent Rights & a New Climate for Innovation in Japan, edited by Dr Ruth Taplin and on sale from the Intellectual Property Institute, London at £35.00 or US$50.00. Published in 2003, this slim volume didn't attract very much attention in wider IP circles. But, as its web-blurb says,

"it provides up-to-date information on current IP practices as well as cultural and infrastructural changes that should interest anyone in high technology business operating or looking to operate in the region. Specialists in the field, lawyers, management consultants and anyone that plans to do business in Japan and wishes to understand the nature of changing risk factors will find this book invaluable".
Though the editor is an academic, the text is fact- and reality-driven, which is what makes it so appealing to people who, while ever willing to generate their own theory, need data and an amenable framework in which to understand it.

Exploiting a new climate for innovation...

The IPKat's glad he's got a copy. Merpel however raises a bewhiskered eyebrow and asks, "if this book is published by the Intellectual Property Institute, why doesn't it have a proper copyright notice in terms of Article III.1 of the Universal Copyright Convention -- or does no-one care any more?"
