Degree Overview

From the cinema and music industries to the pharmaceutical and information technology sectors, intellectual property rights are everywhere and becoming increasingly controversial. Despite being private law rights, their long history of harmonisation through public international law-making has meant that they have played a significant role in:

– economic integration
– cultural homogenisation
– technical diffusion
– the globalisation of Western law.
