Vanderbilt Journal of Transnational Law

A complete reading of the book leaves open the question of for whom the book is primarily intended. The best answer perhaps is that it has something to offer everyone--lawyer, scientist, intellectual property owner, economist, and politician--having an intellectual curiosity in how global intellectual property systems can and should evolve. From an individual reader's perspective, a cover to cover study of the book may leave the reader feeling overwhelmed and unsatisfied. However, if viewed as a resource, from which portions applicable to the reader's own field of interest are selected for close examination, the book has much to offer. Fortunately, the editors have done an admirable job of organizing the separate contributions that facilitates use of the book in this manner.
