Intellectual property law is fascinating. We are all familiar with, and are users of, intellectual property. In addition, the subject matter of intellectual property – the application of an idea in making or selling products and services – forms the fundament of a society’s cultural, technological, educational and economic development. With the growth of trade and of the transfer of information on a world wide scale, both intellectual property law and intellectual property infringement are a global concern. Continuing rapid technological development challenges and expands traditional boundaries of intellectual property regimes. Digital recording technology, the internet, genetic engineering all pose new challenges and new opportunities. In all, this is a dynamic and developing subject which touches on a wide area of human concern – trade, economic progress, intellectual and cultural advancement, and the acquisition and dissemination of information, as well as the more prosaic acquisition of goods and chattels.
