Despite increasing worldwide harmonization of intellectual property, driven by US patent reform and numerous EU Directives, the common law and civil law traditions still exert powerful and divergent influences on certain features of national IP systems. Drawing together the views and experiences of scholars and lawyers from the United States, Europe and Asia, this book examines how different characteristics embedded in national IP systems stem from differences in the fundamental legal principles of the two traditions. It questions whether these elements are destined to remain diverged, and tries to identify common ground that might facilitate a form of harmonization. Containing the most current and up-to-date IP issues from a global perspective, this book will be a valuable resource for IP and comparative law academics, law students, policy makers, as well as lawyers and in-house counsels.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`Intellectual Property in Common Law and Civil Law presents the perspectives of common as well as civil law, on global IP Law's most pertinent issues ranging from inventive step all the way to injunctive relief. Edited by Professor Takenaka, director of the University of Washington's renowned Center for Advanced Studies and Research on IP (CASRIP), the book assembles deep but easy to read essays by some of the world's leading IP scholars. In short, IP Law's most important issues from a global perspective; by the world's leading scholars, yet in a nutshell. Excellent!' -- Christoph Ann, Technische Universitat Munchen, Germany
`All in all, the book represents an interesting approach to the complex topic of international and comparative intellectual property rights.' -- Christopher Heath, International Review of Intellectual Property and Competition Law
