The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) is actively seeking ways for member countries to enhance their individual economic development within the context of overall regional advancement. Central to this is the creation of a regional intellectual property framework. This book examines the efforts to move beyond sovereign protections of intellectual property rights and establish meaningful inter-state cooperation on intellectual property issues. Rather than aim for IP harmonization, ASEAN recognizes its internal diversity and pursues an agenda of 'IP Interoperability'. The essays in this collection examine the unique dynamics of 'interoperability', analyzing the administration of intellectual property in a part of the world that is of increasing importance. The book enables the reader to compare and contrast the ASEAN model to other approaches in regional cooperation, such as Europe and Latin America, and also explores private international law as a potential vehicle for interoperability.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'... a very innovative collection of scholarly works on a rather archaic area of ASEAN economic integration efforts. The authors take into consideration the diversity of intellectual property regime and propose a series of pathways forward within that woefully uneven IP terrain. The end result is a very convincing concept of 'IP interoperability' as a first step on the long journey towards a more robust and unified set of standards for intellectual property protection in an emerging AEC. ... a major contribution within the myriad limitations and variation of legal regimes in ASEAN.' Surin Pitsuwan, former Secretary-General of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) (2008-12)
'We live in a moment of upheaval and uncertainty, with increasing awareness of the costs associated with a one-size-fits-all approach to intellectual property rights. As the pendulum swings away from a commitment to worldwide harmonization, an intriguing alternative has emerged: the ASEAN model of 'interoperability'. The ASEAN Way, introduced in this excellent collection of essays, defines a common set of IP-related values while respecting and accommodating countries' cultural and economic differences. This volume should be required reading for anyone involved in charting the future course of global IP policy.' Stacey Dogan, Boston University School of Law
'This examination of a range of intellectual property issues occurring in ASEAN countries offers a detailed analysis of national laws in an increasingly important region of the world. But it also explores how the concept of interoperability functions in each of legislative, judicial and administrative settings, presenting a mechanism for reconciling respect for national diversity with demands for greater commonality. The editors present an optimistic vision for what can be achieved in tackling this most central dilemma of international intellectual property law, which is a helpful intellectual provocation as more longstanding mechanisms of international law struggle to make progress on that dilemma.' Graeme B. Dinwoodie, University of Oxford
