This book illustrates the connections among innovation, policy and law and shows the ways in which the law can work as a key instrument of innovation policy. A cross-disciplinary study, it considers the ways in which the law has accommodated innovation, and the ways in which a legal framework for facilitating and managing new technologies has developed. As well as canvassing broad theoretical issues, the book presents a number of case studies relating to intellectual property, competition and trade and government sponsorship and entrepreneurship. Innovation, Policy and Law examines issues in public and industrial policy from the viewpoint of legal studies. It will therefore be of interest to readers in science and technology studies as well as legal professionals and those in government, the public sector and industry.
