The world of intellectual property (patents, trade marks, copyrights, et cetera) is becoming increasingly international. More and more frequently, disputes about intellectual property have an international character. This inevitably raises questions of private international law: which national court is competent to adjudicate an international dispute of this kind? And which national law should be applied to an international case of this kind? Since the 1990s, the first question in particular has attracted attention; in recent years, the focus has shifted to the second question: which national law is applicable? Opinions differ widely on this matter today. The controversy focuses on the question whether the Berne Convention and the Paris Convention, the two most important treaties on intellectual property, contain a rule that designates the applicable law. In other words: do these treaties contain a 'conflict-of-law rule' as it is called? This question, which concerns nearly all countries in the world, is nowadays considered to be 'heftig umstritten' (fiercely contested) and 'très difficile' (very difficult). And that is where we come across something strange: today it may be fiercely contested whether these treaties contain a conflict-of-law rule, but in the past, for the nineteenth-century authors of these treaties, it was perfectly self-evident that these treaties contained a conflict-of-law rule, namely in the 'principle of national treatment' as it is called. How is that possible? These are the fundamental questions at the heart of this book: does the principle of national treatment in the Berne Convention and the Paris Convention contain a conflict-of-law rule? And if so, why do we no longer understand this conflict-of-law rule today? This book is an English translation of Sierd J. Schaafsma's ground-breaking book, which appeared in Dutch in 2009 (now updated, see Foreword). Key features include: provides deep insight into the current state of affairs in international intellectual property law extensive analysis on the principle of national treatment in the Berne Convention and the Paris Convention detailed and authoritative explanation of the applicable law at the intersection of the law of conflicts and intellectual property law.

ÔIntellectual Property in Common Law and Civil Law presents the perspectives of common as well as civil law, on global IP LawÕs most pertinent issues ranging from inventive step all the way to injunctive relief. Edited by Professor Takenaka, director of the University of WashingtonÕs renowned Center for Advanced Studies and Research on IP (CASRIP), the book assembles deep but easy to read essays by some of the worldÕs leading IP scholars. In short, IP LawÕs most important issues from a global perspective; by the worldÕs leading scholars, yet in a nutshell. Excellent!Õ Ð Christoph Ann, Technische UniversitŠt Mÿnchen, Germany 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.
