That book argued for strong private rights whilst at the same time calling for caution in the expansionary trend. In theperiod since the first volume, intellectual property protection has grown ever stronger, and this new book focuses on finding ways to cope with the fragmentation of rights and the complex framework this expansion of rights has created. At the core of the book are considerations of such initiativesas patent clearing models, standard setting organizations, licensing arrangements and informal work-arounds. It also examines the measures that seek to protect the public domain, including strategic licensing, collective rights organizations, and non-profit ventures such as creative commons andopen-source publishing.
