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?"

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
