Introduction Intellectual property rights foster innovation. But if, as it surely does, "intellectual property" means not just intellectual property rules-the law of patents, copyrights, trademarks, designs, trade secrets, and unfair competition-but also intellectual property institutions-the courts, police, regulatory agencies, and collecting soc- ties that administer these rules-what are the respective roles of intellectual property rules and institutions in fostering creativity? And, to what extent do forces outside intellectual property rules and institutions-economics, culture, politics, history-also contribute to innovation? Is it possible that these other factors so overwhelm the impact of intellectual property regimes that it is futile to expect adjustments in intellectual property rules and institutions to alter patterns of inno- tion and, ultimately, economic development? It was to address these questions in the most dynamic region of the world today, Asia, that we invited leading country experts to contribute studies that not only summarize the current condition of intellectual property regimes in countries ranging in economic size from Cambodia to Japan, and in population from Laos to China, but that also describe the historical sources of these laws and institutions; the realities of intellectual property enforcement in the marketplace; and the political, economic, educational, and scientific infrastructures that sustain and direct inve- ment in innovative activity.

Editorial Reviews

Aus den Rezensionen:". Insgesamt stellt der Sammelband ein beeindruckendes Übersichtswerk auf hohem Niveau dar. Seinem Anspruch, die Dynamiken des Immaterialgüterrechtsschutzes in Asien eingehend aufzuzeigen, ist es vollumfänglich gerecht geworden . ist das Werk für Entscheidungsträger, Wissenschaftler und Praktiker in einem beginnenden asiatischen Zeitalter unverzichtbar ." (Andrea Wechsler, in: Zeitschrift für Geistiges Eigentum / Intellectual Property Journal, 2011, Vol. 3, S. 352f.)
