Description

This book addresses an issue that is extremely contemporary and has far reaching ramification to Industry, economy and the society itself. The text stars with a discussion on the why and how of private property. Property rights systems develop in a manner that is consistent with the outcomes of a market system where the market works. These systems would then correct situations where a market does not work. Historically the concept of private property has been hotly debated. And the economists’ contribution to this debate is restricted to how a property rights system maximizes the value of the asset.

The system of Intellectual property rights has developed similarly and has opened up the knowledge arena, encouraged interactions from analogous fields, introduced competitiveness and incentivised inter-sectoral movement. When talking of IPRs in India, this book also focuses on issues that cannot be avoided: the impact of IPRs on agriculture, software and the healthcare sectors. This book promises in the least an exciting future for students of the knowledge society. As the multi lateral system that governs world trade gears up for a momentous year in 2005. The issue of intellectual property will be hotly contested and fiercely debated.
